HOMEGAME 2

5 October 2022

National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, and livestreamed

AFTER THREE LONG YEARS WE’RE HOME

 HomeGame 2 is bigger and better in every way and is the essential Scottish event for financial planners, advisers and those who serve them.

Come and join us in person or live online on 5 October 2022 as we take on Consumer Duty, technology fragmentation and much more.

WE HAVE MUCH TO DISCUSS

In a packed day, we’ll cover:

  • Fragmentation and integration of the sector – how technology is or isn’t helping
  • Consumer Duty and what it means in practice
  • The fintech sector in Scotland and what it can do for adviser firms

We’re pleased to announce that Ivan McKee, MSP and Minister for Business, Trade, Tourism and Enterprise will make a keynote address and take questions.

You wouldn’t expect the lang cat to run a boring event, and as well as a packed agenda we want to make this a real occasion. So after the worky bit we are lucky that the National Museum of Scotland has agreed to open up the stunning Hawthornden Court and Kingdom of the Scots exhibition for a private drinks reception, along with the chance to win a very special – and we do mean special – bottle of malt whisky. There may even be an afterparty.

Best of all – in-person tickets are completely free for advice professionals. We count advisers, planners, paraplanners (insourced or outsourced), administrators and other employees of advice businesses as advice professionals. We’ll ask you a few questions as you check out. Everyone else – sorry, we need you to pay your way if you want to attend in person.

Streaming tickets are free for everyone and we’ll do our utmost to make it as interactive a day for the streamers as it is for the in-person folks.

Unstructured CPD will be available for those who need that sort of thing.

“Great speakers, great subjects, great questions. Always one of the most thought provoking events I attend”

“I was unsure how worthwhile a streamed event would be for me. Couldn’t have been more wrong, an excellent event and would definitely attend again.”

“Back to in-person, alongside an energetic delivery of content. Day didn’t drag at all which is testament of a great event.”

“The Scottish financial services landscape – fintech and all”
