Gain a broad view of FinTech and an understand the influence of technology

FinTech innovators understand that banks, lenders, wealth managers and insurance companies are now in the business of information exchange management. These financial intermediaries are using customer and market condition data to improve the quality, speed and price at which value is delivered.

Data trading can have its dark side, as regulators work to keep pace with revolutionary disruption. Innovators who exchange and consume customer information to profit both their organisations and their clientele can make FinTech a force for good. This programme will consider how information is used by FinTech firms to build insights and influence consumer behaviour.

This programme will provide you with a broad view of FinTech and an understanding of the influence of technology on the ways data is used, misused, leveraged and shared by financial intermediaries.

This programme is being delivered in collaboration with Emeritus.

What can we say about the future of financial intermediaries? Simple. Don't worry so much about a huge competitor if you're a bank. These are not the competitors who should worry you. You should worry more about the hundreds of tiny competitors who are out there trying to eat your lunch.
