Back in May 2014, we were asked by people in the Iranian banking industry
to introduce two top bankers to speak at “The 5th International Conference on Banking
Services Marketing” . Hosted by Financial Services Marketing Center,
FSM, the conference was held in Tehran on 17th and 18th August 2014.
Here are some details about the two bankers CAPTO invited to that conference and their presentations.
Dr. Iain Allan - A visiting professor of Actuarial Science at Cass Business School, Iain was Group Director of Strategy for the once biggest bank in the world (Royal Bank of Scotland) for 14 years, during which time he made important contributions to the establishment of a supermarket banking joint venture with Tesco, to RBS’s successful acquisition of the much larger bank NatWest and to the establishment of a strategic partnership and joint ventures with Bank of China.
Iain delivered two fantastic presentations at the conference in Tehran on 17th and 18th August. In his first speech, Dr. Allan explained about “Financial Supermarkets” (focusing, among other things, on supermarket banking in the US and the UK, and the barriers to entry in retail banking). The title of his second presentation was “Designing Universal Banking Strategy”, with an emphasis on universal banks and the banking crisis, and the situation of universal banks since the financial crisis of 2008.
Peter Goettler – A formidable banker, Peter was Barclays Bank's Head of Investment Banking and Debt Capital Markets in Americas, and Chief Executive Officer of that bank in Latin America. Prior to joining Barclays in 2001, and before leaving Merill Lynch as Senior Coverage Officer, Peter was Head of Global Debt Organization, and Head of Debt Capital Markets of Deutsche Bank in North America. Peter graduated from MIT, where he was awarded simultaneous BS/MS degrees in Management.
In his first presentations at the international banking conference in Tehran, titled “Building Universal Banking Product Lines Organically – Investment Banking Case Study”, Peter traced and explained the evolution of universal banking.
Mr. Goettler’s second speech, titled “Managing Culture Between Universal Banking Business Units – Competitive Advantage or Achilles Heel”, concentrated on universal banking model, and the roots/challenges of investment banking culture.
