Fintech Digitization and Transformation of SMEs and B2B: What You Need to Know
The financial services industry is continuously being challenged by digital disruption. Investments in financial technology have grown exponentially in recent years, with 70% of those investments owed to the personal and small and medium enterprises (SME) segments. This trend is being driven by the changing behavior of consumers and the evolving information and content delivery, which are now becoming important in financial services transactions across the globe.
The business-to-business (B2B) segment, however, is still widely dominated by incumbents. Unlike SME, FinTech in the B2B space has not yet reached its full potential. But as the demand for complex B2B models increase, the growth of FinTech in this segment is likely to be expected this year and beyond.
In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will help businesses and consumers understand the important aspects of FinTech digitization and the transformation of SMEs and B2Bs. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the challenges and opportunities this digital disruption offers. Speakers will also offer strategies on how to overcome these challenges and leverage the opportunities offered by FinTech.
Key topics include:
- 2016 FinTech Trends and Developments
- Digital Disruption of SMEs and B2B
- Key Challenges and Opportunities for 2017
- FinTech Regulatory Updates
