Keynote Dinner - How is FinTech impacting Financial Services?
The World Economic Forum recently released a report, “Beyond FinTech: A pragmatic assessment of disruptive potential in financial services”, which represents three years of research including surveys and interviews of many of the leading financial and FinTech firms globally. The report identifies eight key forces that have the potential to shift the financial services landscape including the rise of platforms and marketplaces, and how some technologies and technology firms are becoming systemically important to the financial ecosystem. Join us for our quarterly dinner where R. Jesse McWaters will talk in depth through the results of this research, and all attendees will be sent a copy of the report.
R. Jesse McWaters leads the World Economic Forum’s exploration of fintech and financial innovation. His work focuses on bringing together senior financial services executives, leading fintech players, and global regulators to understand how new technologies and innovative new entrants are transforming the competitive dynamics of the global financial ecosystem.
He is the co-author of the World Economic Forum’s groundbreaking “Future of Financial Services” report which charted a taxonomy of fintech innovation, and more recently published in-depth explorations into the potential of blockchain (“The Future of Financial Infrastructure”) and the digitization of identity (“A Blueprint for Digital Identity”) to revolutionize financial services.
