“You’re filling your toolbox…You’re not going to need it today or tomorrow, but one day it’s good to have.”
Matthew Scharpf, vice president of sell side business development for Eurex, gives a unique look at systems in the financial industry and how we can connect new pieces together to create innovation. Using his guitar and knowledge of music, Scharpf explains how individual notes can be combined into chords and used in a variety of instances to create different songs. And even when it may seem like there are some limitations in songwriting, different tools and methods can help facilitate the creation of something new. Scharpf compares this system to the financial industry and tells his audience how this type of thinking also applies to their careers. There may be times when different parts of a system utilized with other tools can create something new and innovative. It’s just a matter of thinking outside the box.
