Exploring the role of the Chief Operating Officer


London, New York, Toronto,

Hong Kong, Singapore.


Every COO role is unique and whilst core responsibilities may be common, no two roles match and no two days are the same. Each COO is unique in their experiences, career profiles and journeys to becoming a COO.


The commonality that does exist between COOs is that they are problem solvers and sit at the heart of the business.  They may not own everything, but they see all and can influence all.


Armstrong Wolfe's COO forum creates an ideas-exchange and the opportunity for COOs to share knowledge and ideas on non-proprietary challenges.

​Armstrong Wolfe's COO forum has been running since 2015. Each event is hosted by a bank and attendees are executive COOs from global companies. A roundtable debate is facilitated by Armstrong Wolfe and industry experts present on key topics.


To explore the role of the COO further, read No Place to Hide; the role of the banking Chief Operating Officer, a book written by Armstrong Wolfe’s Managing Director, Maurice Evlyn-Bufton.

Thank you very much for including me; I thought that the event was excellent. The diversity of FinTech solutions made it extremely informative and valuable for the attendees. I was able to participate in the breakout session and I also connected with a few folks which was extremely helpful.
