Fintech & Regulatory Innovation
Rapid advancements in financial technology, or fintech, are opening the door to greater financial inclusion and sustainable development in Asia and the Pacific. However, the growing knowledge gap between innovators and regulators regarding fintech and business models that apply it threatens to undermine the benefits while giving rise to new challenges.
If inadequately addressed, associated risks such as fraud, data privacy breaches, and other cyber vulnerabilities could increasingly harm consumers and stability. Regulatory deficiencies could also hinder competitiveness and growth within the fintech sector. Yet, for many policy makers, particularly in the region’s developing economies, keeping pace with fintech innovation is extremely difficult given their frequent lack of specialized knowledge and skills.
Against this backdrop, ADBI, Cambridge University’s Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance, and the Cambridge Judge Business School Executive Education Limited are offering an intensive 8-week Online Course on Fintech & Regulatory Innovation. The course will examine the latest advancements in fintech, its financial inclusion implications, and strategies and tools for mitigating associated risks.
Admission to the course is selective and open to qualified policy makers from Asian Development Bank developing member countries. Selected applicants will be awarded ADBI scholarships.
