Wavelength Podcast Episode 160: Pete Cherecwich of Northern Trust

Pete talks about privacy and convenience—and where firms tend to get tripped up when walking this balance beam.

James Rundle, WatersTechnology’s editor, and Anthony Malakian, editor at large, record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology.

To hear the full interview, listen in the player above, or you can download it.

Pete Cherecwich, president of Corporate & Institutional Services (C&IS) at Northern Trust, joins the podcast to examine the challenges that firms face today when trying to offer convenience through technological innovation, while also making sure that these services are secure—the old security-versus-convenience debate, but on an enterprise scale. Also, Bloomberg intends to exit two key businesses and WatersTechnology has a new reporter.
