2019 FinTech Summit Theme: rise
FinTechs Go Multiline in Act II
The early FinTech mantra was: “We’re focused providers, we do one thing well, better than incumbents who are generalists”  In Act II, they’re maturing… adding products, going multiline
Discussion Topics
  • What is driving rebundling?
  • What is the decision tree to determine which services should be rebundled?
  • What lessons can be learned from other industries?
  • How will this change Fintech vs. Incumbent competition?
No Customer Left Behind
With 2 billion unbanked + 1.4 billion having limited access to investing/insurance, we can’t claim that finance is working for everyone, including SMEs. Fortunately, smart FinTechs are hard at work to fix this issue
Discussion Topics
  • Is Financial Inclusion merely a “feel good” issue, or “a commercially viable” strategy?
  • What are the structural challenges?
  • How is emerging technology enabling inclusion/wellness?
  • What innovative partnerships and strategies can FinTechs employ?
Shared Equity
New Funding/Investing Paradigm
New funding and investing models are emerging with the advent of innovative solutions such as common fractional ownership using tokenization, which promise to break open asset classes that are traditionally considered illiquid
Discussion Topics
  • Fractional ownership is nothing new; So what’s different this time?
  • What are the different strategies being employed by FinTechs?
  • What risks do retail investors face?
  • What are some of the regulatory issues for issuers and investors?
