“FinTech” refers to new technologies that are used in the financial services sector that have the potential of being a transformative force to traditional financial services. Some of these new financial technologies have focused on ways of easing payments, whether domestic or trans-border, investments, asset management or on novel ways of lending credit by using peer-to-peer platforms.
Jointly organised by the Center for Information Technology, Society, and Law (ITSL) of the University of Zurich and the Asian Institute of International Financial Law (AIIFL) and the Law and Technology Centre of the University of Hong Kong, this workshop will feature a distinguished group of scholars and practitioners in both Hong Kong and Zurich working at the cusp of this new financial transformation. The workshop will explore FinTech from both the Asian and European perspectives, as well as the role that the ownership of data could play in the FinTech environment and in many other sectors of the digital economy, especially when data becomes ever more valuable as the technologies to analyse such data evolve.
