  • Life In 2030: Henry Ritchotte discusses AI’s future in financial services

    Request a reminder

    At Hot Topics, we believe there are many important things going on in the world right now. Brexit, Trump, Cryptocurrencies and IT consumerization to name a few. We pride ourselves on producing the coverage you need to be able to do your job better and feel more informed. Though sometimes, we think it is important to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. In homage to this idea, we’ve put together a series of interviews called: Life In 2030.

    We’ll be speaking to some of the world’s foremost thinkers on Artifical Intelligence and discussing the moral obligation we have as a society to prepare for it now, in order to avoid a disastrous future filled with sentient beings. Leading the series will be Manu Gupta, a contributing editor here at Hot Topics and a general partner at Lakestar Ventures.

    He’ll be kicking things off in a discussion with Henry Ritchotte, the former COO of Deutsche Bank. Given his background, Henry is well placed to have a discussion around how banks have, and will continue to use AI to reap efficiencies and move closer to the consumer. He first joined Deutsche Bank in 1995 and prior to his current role, held the position of Chief Operating Officer for the Corporate & Investment Bank from 2010 to 2012, having previously been COO for the Global Markets division. Henry played a decisive role in the strategic recalibration and further integration of the Corporate & Investment Bank. On top of this, his other previous roles at Deutsche Bank include serving as Head of Global Markets in Tokyo. He has since taken to fintech investing.
