Speaker: Prof. Christophe Schinckus, Professor of Finance & Head of the School of Finance and Economics at Taylor’s University in Malaysia


Dear members & friends,

When FinTech is mentioned, the e-Wallet or e-Pay icon comes to mind for some. Much of the attention surrounding FinTech today focused on financial services with very little discussion about nonfinancial services firms and FinTech and its blockchain technology-based tools can also create and deliver value. However, this new industry involves much more than financial transactions or services - FinTech will move beyond simply being a function provided by financial institutions as it can be presented across all sectors, applying cloud-based technologies that combine open source software and blockchain technologies. 

This talk will offer a primer on FinTech and blockchain for general manager and executives by discussing how distributed ledger based systems can impact traditional business models; and, how they can be used to create value through an appropriate organizational strategy. 

If you are new or not to Fintech, this talk will give you an overview of the latest developments and how they can be integrated in your strategy.

Who should attend?
Expats, Malaysian employees who work in multicultural environments, team leaders, managers.
