Join us in Santa Rosa on July 20-21, 2022 to “Take Flight” for our 4th CuneXus Client Symposium!
Wine flights are an excellent way to taste wines side-by-side to reveal the subtle differences that you might have otherwise missed, which is why the experience can be educationally compelling.
The CuneXus Client Symposium mimics that same “comparative tasting” experience by putting our clients together at this premier event to listen to and discuss the subtle differences in strategy and execution of the CuneXus products and services they use. Each attendee will walk away with a greater knowledge and appreciation of the variety of approaches to Perpetual Lending.
It is most beneficial for customer experience, lending and marketing personnel that drive the strategy for the solution, as well as folks that are hands-on in the software. The 2022 Symposium will take place over two days, Wednesday and Thursday, July 20th – 21st.
There is no cost to attend this event. A hosted dining experience follows the conclusion of the Symposium. We hope to see you there!
Although we do not charge customers to attend this event, we do reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee of $395 for all no-shows and any reservation cancelled after July 1, 2022.

A Decentralized Revolution: Where Will Technology Take Banking Next?
The financial services ecosystem is changing rapidly. This is a global phenomenon, yet the impact is far from even. The growing presence of fintech startups has shifted the banking business model and impacted revenue streams. From open banking to embedded banking, alternative assets, cryptocurrencies, web3, and digital payments to Buy Now, Pay Later credit schemas, banking is far from static. Technology is only part of this much broader business model shift. What do these changes mean for all of us? How can we ensure there are positive changes for more members of our global society? How can we serve more people and meet more financial needs? How can banking go Beyond Good?
