Fintech is changing the usual methods of traditional banking. From investing services to crowdfunding to financial management platforms, these financial products are now becoming mainstream and widely adopted by consumers through mobile devices. With fintech on the rise, many questions abound. How are traditional banks responding to the fintech revolution? Will banks and fintech companies engage in partnerships? How will the financial services landscape change in the years to come? In this program, our panel of experts discuss key trends that are driving fintech growth in Japan and the United States, the barriers and opportunities for fintech innovation, and the future of fintech and banking.
