Global Conference 2017
GC2017 program det

FinTech investment has grown tremendously as tech-driven platforms break down silos, disintermediate and democratize finance, and challenge legacy regulatory structures. The conversation on FinTech, however, continues to largely focus on its potential. In this session, participants will move beyond "potential" to the impact FinTech is making on financial inclusion, access to capital, transparency and compliance. Questions will include:

  • Can you clearly define why these platforms are necessary and how FinTech has alleviated the various frictions in finance?
  • Beyond the headline numbers, how have these platforms helped the consumer build a "meaningful life?"
  • Where are the points of friction with regulators around the world and how have you been able to move regulators beyond education to a collaborative partner phase?
