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 including payments, capital raising, investment, remittances, managing uncertainty and risk, market price discovery, and mediating information asymmetry and incentives.
Fintech business leaders, whether they work at incumbent financial institutions, fintech startups, tech companies, or fintech roles at non-fintech firms need to be fluent in evolving methodologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence, grasp basic foundational fintech technologies like blockchain, understand core financial services practices and operations, to become comfortable leading innovation in financial services enterprises.
