“Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them.”

-Steve Jobs [1955 -2011]

The Digital & Fintech Revolution

The Digital FinTech Revolution is accelerating our access to knowledge, transforming how we communicate, and creating a wave of digital disruption that will reshape the financial services industry. As regulators and banks refocus on updating their policies and operating models, the next generation of FinTech platforms, including robo advisory, blockchain, digital payment, Bank in a box, security, and P2P lending, are already off to the races. Global investment in financial technology rapidly increased by 3,770% from $930 million in 2008 to $31 billion in 2017. The opportunity to innovate for quantitative finance professionals has never been more compelling than it is today.

Learning objectives include:
  • Identifying trends and key growth sectors of FinTech.
  • Understanding three pillars of FinTech: IOT, Big Data & AI.
  • Addressing the challenges and benefits of Robo Advisors
