Ready to Start Learning?
Join a dynamic group of like-minded professionals and industry leaders.
It’s a well known fact that today’s digital landscape is forcing traditional businesses to pivot in order to stay relevant and integrate into the everyday habits of both individuals and businesses.
This is particularly evident in banking, where we are seeing a shift in the way that we interact with currency, from saving to borrowing to investing. Consequently, more and more fintech startups are emerging to fill consumer needs, which is changing the financial industry and encouraging traditional banks to innovate.
Join expert panelists to discuss the rise of fintech, the integration of new and innovative technologies within financial services, and the future of digital finance.
