In a global economy in which interconnectivity and light-speed information transmission pose both tremendous investment opportunities and a host of risks ranging from regulatory to cybersecurity, FinTech is an area that is increasingly relevant to all areas of business.
Despite a long history rich with innovation primarily driven by financial institutions over many decades, FinTech is, however, often viewed as a new trend, and by some as a fad rife with the get-rich-schemes of charlatans.
This intensive one-day course – part of a new series of technology specific programmes – will help you separate myth from reality and gain a critical foundational appreciation for FinTech developments and associated innovations globally, with an unique focus on Asia and China in particular.
This course can be taken separately or as part of a weekly discount fee package (Week 1).
Using a combination of case studies, research findings, and exercises, this course packs into a single day FinTech’s history, recent global developments, the dramatic evolution of innovation, technology and regulation in emerging markets, and China’s emergence as a global FinTech powerhouse.
It will arm you with knowledge necessary to enable you to understand market developments, and set you up to capitalise on upcoming innovations, either as a consumer or market participant.
Course content will range for high-level strategic overviews to detailed insights into market and sector developments that have driven dramatic change in recent years.
Course participants will take away knowledge-based confidence to take advantage of FinTech developments for themselves and/or their organisations, and potentially even participate in or drive such change themselves.
Who is this course for?
A wide range of individuals can benefit from this course. While ideal for experienced or new middle managers, the course can also equip senior managers with the foundational knowledge necessary to understand and ride the FinTech wave. It is also ideal for anyone wishing to gain a solid overview of this fascinating subject matter.
Presentations, case studies, short videos, and group exercises.
