How the Crisis Changes the Relationship
Speaker: Jeremy J. Wilson, Vice Chairman, Barclays Commercial Bank
Banks relationships with their corporate clients are changing. This is particularly relevant as the financial crisis hit and technology innovation increased. These challenges are driving banks towards new approaches, and are changing the nature of commercial bank services for the corporate client. What are these innovations and what should banks be considering for the future? Jeremy Wilson, Vice Chairman of Barclays Commercial Bank, will take us through the process that Barclays Bank is taking to these challenges.
Jeremy Wilson is responsible for engagement with Barclays' major corporate and institutional customers in the development of new business and maintenance of key relationships.
