Blockchain – CEO Interview

Implications of metadata for the security strategies of financial institutions

Paul Hooper, CEO, Gigamon


Realities from the cutting edge of financial technology and services innovation

Will existing financial players become digitally dominant as they embrace new technologies and prevent start-ups gaining a foothold?

Or will they find themselves digitally disrupted as their income streams are picked off by new players, losing market share and scale?

FINTech 2016: Leveraging the Opportunities will provide you with key insights on a new generation of emerging technologies and financial service opportunities as well as the way forward, moving beyond disruption through greater collaboration between financial institutions, fintech companies and regulators.

Just a selection of the hottest developments and industry concerns being addressed include:

  • Bridging the gap – Is the HK fintech ecosystem healthy? – What insights can be gained from China and globally?
  • How does big business work with the little guy? – How can fintechs remain innovative when working with the big guys? – Is the HK environment and ecosystem supportive enough for building a strong fintech industry?
  • Regulating from within the fintech system – are current policies and regulations enough to maintain HK’s future opportunities as a major financial and fintech centre?

Trending topics and forecasts for fintech to be explored in-depth include:

  • Important financial industry use cases with blockchain, including payments and transactions over real time networks
  • How intelligent automation including robo-advisors and cognitive analytics will transform retail and institutional investment
  • Frontier technologies to watch that will drive future expectations, competitive differentiation and deliver outstanding customer experience
