Fintech is revolutionizing how firms create and deliver products and services, provide new gateways for entrepreneurship, address privacy and regulatory challenges, and seed opportunities for inclusive growth. Increasingly, technological advances are transforming the main financial intermediation functions: payments, capital raising, investment, remittances, managing uncertainty and risk, market price discovery, and mediating information asymmetry and incentives. In today’s fintech businesses, consumers bank via mobile apps integrated into social media, institutions trade electronically, and robo-advisers make decisions about investment portfolios.
Fintech business leaders, whether they work at incumbent financial institutions, fintech startups, or technology companies, need to be fluent in evolving quantitative methodologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence, grasp basic foundational fintech technologies like blockchain, understand core financial services practices and operations, and become comfortable leading disruptive innovation in financial services enterprises.
