Future Proof FintechX Demo Drop Opens Call for Applications

The world's largest wealth festival will give 10 fintech providers the opportunity to demo their platform live to thousands of financial professionals, including some of the industry’s most influential leaders

BOSTON--()--Future Proof Festival, expected to be one of the largest wealth and fintech events ever, today is announcing the Future Proof FintechX Demo Drop, a unique opportunity for fintech innovators to present and display the newest and most innovative technology platforms and tools live from the event. Co-created by Advisor Circle and Ritholtz Wealth Management, Future Proof is going to be unlike anything the wealth management industry has ever seen before.

Ten selected fintech companies, who submit an application, will be given the opportunity to demo live in front of an audience of thousands of financial advisors, asset managers, venture and private equity investors, and the media. There’s no bigger stage for fintech companies building wealthtech and advisortech solutions to unveil their tools and technologies.

Applications to become one of the 10 fintech providers featured at Future Proof will be accepted now through July 8th. Any company that has built fintech tools and products is invited to apply; Future Proof is aiming to feature the wide gamut of fintech in this showcase. Nominations are expected to be competitive as Future Proof has fielded more than 150 applications for speaker roles, none of which are pay to play.

“Technology is allowing investors to connect with financial advisors and wealth management companies in ways they never could before. Investors are becoming more aware of what they need and want, and are demanding more from the financial professionals who service them,” said Matt Middleton, CEO of Advisor Circle. “It’s critical that we shine a light on the emerging technologies enabling financial professionals to adapt, evolve, and grow as they look to meet the needs of and deliver value to their clients.”

“There are a lot of exciting businesses being built to make an advisor’s job easier and the client’s financial life better. It’s our responsibility to learn what tools and services are out there so that we can become future proof,” said Michael Batnick, Managing Partner at Ritholtz Wealth Management. “FintechX will feature the hottest new technology available. While finance has long been considered among the slowest industries to adopt change and cutting edge tools, we're going to put 10 companies front and center who will flip that perception on its head.”

The 10 companies who will present at Future Proof will be selected by a judging committee of industry experts who will evaluate each fintech applicant based on creativity, outside-the-box thinking and the ability to create a real impact for the Future Proof audience. There is no cost to apply and to demo your fintech at Future Proof, aside from the associated costs of travel, accommodation and other necessary festival expenses. Winners selected to showcase will be announced on July 26th ahead of Future Proof, which will run from September 11-14 in Huntington Beach, CA.
