Course Description

From start-ups all around the world, entrepreneurs are applying their creativity and technical ingenuity all along the financial services value chain.

This wave of innovation promises a FinTech revolution that will change financial services for ever. For consumers and business alike there is the promise of vastly improved financial services.
 
Consumers will get more choices and keener pricing. Small and medium sized businesses will gain access to new forms and lines of credit. Banks productivity will increase, transaction costs will come down, operational resilience will be better.
 
All this will lead to a more resilient financial system with greater diversity, redundancy and depth.
