Sooner Than You Think:
Fintech

We take a deep dive into the technologies that are changing how we spend, save and invest.

From AI-enabled robo-investing, to the implications of a cashless world, to the impact on monetary policy if and when governments move to digital tender, technological innovation is rapidly changing our relationship to money. It’s creating new opportunities but also, a number of poorly understood risks.

Thailand has transformed its fintech landscape from that of a regional laggard to a leader – it’s considered second only behind Singapore in a very short space of time. That is why the Bloomberg Future of Fintech summit will come to Bangkok in 2020. Join us as we spotlight the bankers, technologists, entrepreneurs and policy-makers who are creating a new future for global fintech.
