The Challenge

Digital has revolutionised almost every industry but for some reason for trading & investments in capital markets this is not the case.

We challenge you (who love to code, create and innovate) to develop a digital idea to disrupt and transform the capital markets industry for clients and staff.

You will have 48 hours to work on and present your solution to a panel of industry leaders who will judge and present prizes to the best ideas. Industry experts will also be available throughout the event to help you identify and refine your ideas.
