Description

FinTech is coming! There’s much talk about disruption these days in the press and at FinTech events. For example, a widely-reported statistic is that Goldman Sachs has replaced 600 of its traders with 200 computer engineers. Is your job at risk? Are there new skills that you need to develop to excel? 

The best way to tell how much of this is hype and how much of this will become reality is to listen to the real leaders from all the key stakeholders who will collectively shape the future of financial services. Therefore, they have invited an all-star cast of industry leaders to share their insights with you: financial institutions, technology innovators, regulators, VC investors, and consulting firms are all represented.

China has been named one of the world’s largest FinTech hubs by Ernst & Young. This has been one of the rare occasions that the world is looking to China and more broadly Asia for directions of the industry’s future. At this event, you’ll also hear live from industry leaders in Beijing about the latest development in China, be it how blockchain may transform our business or impact tech giants such as Alibaba and Tencent have had on the payment business.   

•    The first FinTech event hosted in Beijing and Hong Kong simultaneously!

•    Featuring top leaders from key stakeholders shaping the industry’s future
