The Impact of Exponential Technology and FinTech Innovation
Wednesday 28 November


This event is sponsored by Deloitte


Who will launch the successful fintech moonshot? What will really become a commodity? And how will the average consumer see the value of outstanding fintech innovation or commoditisation? Future entrants in financial services will be shaped by nascent mind-blowing technology, shifting social demographics, and even new economies beyond gigging and services still to emerge.


Thought leaders are already pondering the influences which will make or break current and future entrants. Hear what they’re tracking, how trends intersect, and who and what we’ll see more or less of in financial services in the next 5-10 years. Whether you’ll join them, invest in them, or be rocked by them it’s always best to see what’s coming.
