Session 2: Fintech: The Impact of its Continued Growth

← Back to Schedule

What does the continued growth within the Fintech industry mean for your company, your personal wealth and the health of our global financial markets?

If technology has taught us and our financial leaders anything over the last decade, it is that we must learn and be adaptable to changing times while adhering to the expectations placed on our industries. Nowhere has this truism rung louder than within the financial services sector of our global economy. Over the past several years, consumption for cloud services and financial services offerings among Fintechs accelerated at a rapid pace–far outpacing most traditional industries–despite a global pandemic. This growth has limitless possibilities over the next few years. Not only is it changing how we conceptualize and exchange money, it is creating new market opportunities and rapidly integrating new customers into the global financial system. This panel will discuss the opportunities Fintech offers to you, as well as the key trends to watch in this dynamic industry in the coming years.
