Technology is amazing. We can do things today that would seem like magic at the turn of the century. There are few places where this is truer than Financial Services. The rise of “fintech” has changed the nature of brokers and traders, with communications taking hours, not days and complex calculations done in minutes.
With technology allowing for more than ever before, it’s no surprise that many financial businesses are now looking for specialised technology officers. A study by Intertrust found that 73% of decision-makers in finance businesses expect a leap in the demand for CTOs over the next 5 years. With major technological jumps every year, it’s no surprise that businesses want someone who really understands technology managing what they use.
At ASC, we love technology. We’re always trying to keep up-to-date with trends so we can provide the most hassle-free service possible. However, we also think that technology shouldn’t take over everything. Despite all its benefits, technology can never replace a personal relationship. Computers know more things than any person ever will, but they don’t know people.
When you’re looking for finance, no two loans are ever the same. Knowing who we’re getting a loan for, and exactly what their business needs, is more valuable than any algorithm. That’s why we’re proud to say that we provide “A Refreshingly Personal Service”.
