All the way from the United Kingdom, here's wealth management and financial advisory innovator, True Potential. 

"ImpulseSave is our most significant innovation to date. This first-of-its-kind technology, unique to True Potential, allows clients to make micro payments into their investments whenever and wherever they choose. With the touch of a button, clients can top up any investment vehicle that isn't housed within a bank. They can add as little as 1 pound or as much as need to keep their investments on track or to reach their financial goals faster. Until now, if people had 20 pounds or less to spare, they would be unlikely to invest it due to the effort it would take to do so. But now, it's fast and easy and we are demonstrating how, using our technology, it all adds up for a better future.

Our next presenter is Patch of Land, demoing its Peer-to-Real-Estate (P2RE) lending marketplace.

"We are developing a real-time system that pulls data from multiple sources including major credit reporting agencies. This disparate collection of data will be scientifically conglomerated into proprietary information models and risk analysis summaries and extend automatic terms to existing borrowers for new projects. This information will be used by our underwriters along with a proprietary scoring system for increased efficiency in decision making on lending. Electronic documents can immediately be made available to the borrower for signing and funds wired automatically."

Making its way to the stage is the team from blooom. Blooom has developed a revolutionary way to open 401k investors' eyes and outsource the management of their 401k - regardless of where it is held.

"The blooom app collects basic user data (name, email, age) and asks the user to select where their 401(k) is currently held. Once selected, the user's credentials are entered and blooom goes to work to analyze their current investment allocation across 25,000+ different funds to generate a comparative analysis without a bunch of financial mumbo jumbo. Blooom displays how their 401(k) should be allocated and gives the user some latitude to adjust the recommended allocation. In a few more steps, the user can then hire blooom to make these changes and, more importantly, rebalance and adjust the allocation for the user going forward. It is a new and intelligent way to get help with your 401(k) ... all for just $10 per month."

Starting off FinovateFall 2014 with a bang is Top Image Systems, demoing Glass Capture and MobiFLOW.

"We're demonstrating an integrated part of omni-channel approach to capturing the necessary information in the enrollment and account-opening process. Showcasing the flexible and extensible Mobile SDK and Webservices APIs in MobiFLOW on the server, the demo shows a sample bank application that a retail or commercial banking officer might use on a tablet while wearing Google Glass to capture information from documents typically used in the account-opening process. While showing only a few examples, we are also discussing how Google Glass leverages the same technology in TIS' in-market mobile phone and tablet solutions, allowing a user to easily switch between these devices for the best user experience."
