HKU FinTech Day

Hong Kong FinTech Education Week

30 October 2017 (Monday), 2:00 – 6:15 pm
Large Moot Court, 2/F Cheng Yu Tung Tower
The University of Hong Kong

Financial Technology (FinTech) is changing the world of finance at an incredible pace, impacting start-ups, financial institutions, regulators and more recently technology companies. Since 2008, the center of gravity of FinTech has shifted to establish itself in Asia with noticeable large-scale changes occurring in China, India and Australia.

In this context, the University of Hong Kong (HKU)’s pre-existing regional presence and financial expertise has been leveraged into FinTech academic leadership. This event will highlight the work of leading academics at HKU as well as a range of new educational initiatives to support human capital development in Hong Kong and around the world. 

In addition to presentations and panels, HKU FinTech Day will also include a student startup competition and information for students considering studying FinTech at HKU.
