Additional notes:
Product manager role is multifaceted-  good communication skills, good rapport. In general, asked to adapt to many different personalities. 
Workplace strategy – knowing technology, being able to understand risks, being able to investigate really quickly whether a certain technology will be sufficient – does not require prior knowledge of tech. Looking for soft skills, some kind of background, diversity in talking to stake holders, learn, adapt, think on their feet. Prioritize and be transparent. 

Financial institution background is a plus but not a requirement
