NES Financial Chairman and CEO, Michael Halloran, will be speaking at the Sandler O’Neill + Partners 2015 West Coast Financial Services Conference on March 11 in Phoenix, Arizona.

The banking sector is undergoing seismic shifts in operating and regulatory models. At the same time, technology is advancing at a rapid pace, with customer expectations continuously being raised and user experience being refined. Today’s financial leaders need to be able to quickly adapt and deploy technology at a pace that is in line with market need.

Halloran will participate in the panel entitled, “Is Your Bank’s Technology Ready for the Future?”. Along with other experts, Halloran will discuss the challenges that come with an evolving industry and NES Financial’s experience dealing with different engagement and deployment models in the banking sector.

“The challenge in the current environment is that you are taking an industry that historically has been understandably conservative in technology procurement and adoption and asking them to adapt to a rapidly changing technology and service environment,” said Halloran. “NES Financial has the experience and expertise to rapidly address real world and pressing operational needs through our innovative technology, and we do it in a way that reduces risk, speeds return on investment, and provides the greatest level of flexibility to significantly improve transparency and compliance capabilities.”

NES Financial has applied its financial technology, unique domain expertise, and exceptional customer service operation to become the leading independent Qualified Intermediary and EB-5 service provider in the country. The company’s 1031 Exchange Solutions are trusted by more Fortune 500 companies than any other 1031 exchange solutions around. Last year alone, NES Financial processed $85 Billion worth of exchange transactions. The company’s suite of Intelligent EB-5 Solutions, with two recent product additions, has also been used on over 250 EB-5 projects representing more than $10 Billion in capital.

Every year, Sandler O’Neill holds financial services conferences and regional strategy forums as a way to provide attendees with the opportunity to share industry insights and build relationships with other business professionals.
