Demystifying the next paradigm shift in global financial services

This is a live online course running over seven sessions. The first two sessions cover FinTechs that enable and disrupt existing banking practices by using the possibilities of technology. You will identify new challengers that disrupt the status quo. Participants will see how Alibaba and Starbucks affected payments and how they became a financial services company. Participants will focus on the risks and opportunities, but mostly, participants will identify where the next gold mine lies for financial institutions.

From here, we will look at data analytics and what banks have done in the space of systems architecture, payment analytics, behavioral analytics and using neuroscience. All the above requires digital payment solutions. This begs the question on how to create a digital currency. With blockchain and cryptocurrencies on the rise, the following sessions explain the underlying mechanisms. Firstly, we must understand the basics of cryptography. Then, we must understand the Digital Ledger Technology (DLT). In order to master the workings, we breakdown the Digital Ledger Technology into its hashes and blocks before chaining them together to the blockchain. Then we compare Bitcoin to other cryptocurrencies. During the course, you will be given free bitcoin to set up a crypto wallet and make some first payments to your peers. After checking out pitfalls and risks, we end the course with a game reinforcing all the learnings. We encourage critical thinking in participants and present the latest knowledge in this area.
