WHAT: Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) Finance Forum “What’s Next: The New Realities In Retail Financial Services”

The retail financial services industry is at a crossroads as several convergent forces are disrupting the current landscape. Fueling the change is a major shift in the needs of consumers. Baby boomers are preparing in earnest for retirement, while Generation X and Y are pushing for more online services.

All of this is happening while existing technologies are enabling a host of new sales and service capabilities that cut across interaction channels and traditional product lines.
