Assessing Fintech in China – Still Disrupting?

With Zennon Kapron – Founder and Director, KapronAsia

Fintech promises to disrupt the financial industry as we know it today, changing the way that billions of people bank and handle their financial lives. Nowhere is the impact of fintech more evident than in China where by any measure, whether valuations, assets under management, or payment value, fintech is disrupting one of the largest banking industries in the world. It has also created some of the world’s biggest unicorns including Lufax and Ant Financial.

Yet over the past year, delayed IPOs, increased regulations, and general discomfort with data usage have sent waves through the market and left observers wondering what’s next for the industry.

In this engaging one hour webinar, we will take stake of where the market is now and where it is going. We will examine how regulations will impact the future growth of the market, what the latest industry changes mean for the incumbent banks, as well as the implications for the giants of the industry including Tencent, Ant Financial and Lufax.
