Innovation in financial technology (FinTech) has transformed the financial services industry over the past decade and the technological changes are ongoing. Continuous pressure to innovate will shape customer behaviours, business models, and the long-term structure of the financial services industry. This unprecedented interplay between finance and technology offers great potential for developing new financial services business models and products.

This includes a mix of academic presentations, both from finance and from technology/computer science, and a panel discussion by FinTech entrepreneurs and experts.
