Asia-Pacific FinTech Month

This webinar is free and open to the public.

What will drive the finance of tomorrow? The COVID-19 pandemic facilitated strong tailwinds for the adoption of financial technology, with millions of businesses going digital. The continuous development of digital banking and investment, AI and machine learning, blockchain and decentralized finance and fintech in sustainability are expected to be the growth engine for the Asia Pacific region.

To help unlock the power of disruptive technologies and to enable digital transformation in business models, customer experiences and skills of investment professionals, CFA Societies in APAC, in partnership with CFA Institute Asia Pacific Research Exchange (ARX) are teaming up to organize a FinTech Month in August to provide the latest insights on how the fintech ecosystem is evolving, what impact it brings to the financial services industry, and how investors can best position themselves amid these changes.
