FinTech Essentials



You may have heard of the relatively new term “FinTech” bandied about, but what actually is it? And why is it important for everyone to know about and understand?

You may also be familiar with online payment systems such as PayPal, Google Wallet, Crowdo, iMoney and more!

FinTech stands for Finance Technology- an exciting field that’s taking power away from traditional, bloated banks and giving the industry a much needed facelift! It’s helping the underbanked, and many popular FinTech technologies are becoming integrated into everyday life - managing our finances and changing the way we pay in this digital economy!

But what’s with all the lingo? Despite the excitement, understanding exactly what’s happening in the field can be hard. There’s banking terms, tech lingo, and pure FinTech jargon.

As a result of this class, you will have a basic understanding of:

    1. where the opportunities and challenges are in FinTech

    2. know how to keep up to date with its changing face

    3. be in a better position to understand where the future is heading for financial services

      Discover how FinTech in the Malaysian market can potentially be the next Visa, Paypal or Charles Schwab in transforming important areas of the financial services industry like:

      • Retail Banking
      • Lending and Financing
      • Payments and transfers
      • Wealth and Asset Management
      • Markets and Exchanges
      • Insurance
      • Blockchain transactions
