Course overview

It seems like almost every week you see a new report on the impact of FinTech. Some reports proclaim that up to 30% of Financial Services industry’s current jobs will become redundant in the coming years due to FinTech. Some reports comment that FinTech has shaken up the highly regulated industry and is benefiting the end consumer. But no one seems to be disputing that FinTech is redefining the Financial Services industry as we know it. Venture Capitalists as well as Corporates believe so. They are investing in FinTech startups and initiatives. As per a recent KPMG and CB Insights report, $19.1 Bn flowed in the FinTech sector just in 2015. That’s a 106% jump compared to 2014.
