Fintech is driving innovation in financial services globally and changing the nature of commerce and end-user expectations for payments and financial services. While fintech may carry different meanings, it is commonly considered to cover areas such as payments, big data analytics, applications, platforms and cyber security.
Whether Hong Kong would become the fintech hub in Asia is one of the hot discussion topics in the industry in recent years. Despite the key segment, the disruption brought by insurtech and regtech has aroused great interest.
At the Next Generation of Banking, Financial Services and Insurance Industry Forum organized by PCCW Solutions, Fintech and Regtech Leader of China and Hong Kong from PwC and PCCW Solutions will focus on discussing the updates and insights on the latest technology trends shaping the financial services industry in the region, and how enterprises can tackle the challenges and opportunities brought by regulatory compliance requirements.
