About the course
Regardless of your field or industry, you have certainly been affected by the technological innovations in the financial services sector: the way we conduct financial transactions, accept payments, manage assets, and interact with financial institutions is rapidly evolving. How will the innovations in financial technology — FinTech — affect your business, and what opportunities are there for you to capitalize on change? In this course you will analyze five major financial vertical markets in the FinTech sector: robo advising, peer-to-peer lending, insurance tech, currency and payment tech, and digital banking. You will then examine how these markets came into existence, explore how they have evolved over time, and study their business models (i.e., how they generate income). Moreover, you will analyze key trends in each vertical and consider the impacts they have on banks, FinTech companies, and consumers. You will use these insights to identify potential opportunities and risks for disruption within your or another's organization.
It is recommended to only take this course if you have completed FinTech Disruptions or have equivalent experience.
