Digital innovation is reshaping the landscape of finance. Disruptions through internal transformation efforts and FinTech start-ups are revolutionising strategies and operations within the financial industry.
China and Singapore are at the forefront of this change, with advances in areas such as big data, artificial intelligence, blockchain, crypto-assets, digital payment systems, and associated regulations.
As it is a relatively new field, it is pertinent to delve deeper into its economics, to learn from other successful implementations of these technologies, including in biotech & medtech, service robots & digital personal assistants and autonomous vehicles, and consequently advance a financial ecosystem that is as viable. In this new field, industry professionals looking to compete and stay relevant must adapt to, and leverage on, these innovations.
Organised by NUS Business School's Centre for Asset Management Research & Investments (CAMRI) and China Business Centre (CBC), the 10th Wee Cho Yaw Singapore-China Finance and Banking Forum will explore this interrelation between technology, the macroeconomy, and economic growth, and how governments, academia and industry can collaborate on developing digital smart finance prototypes that further economic growth and improve lives.
