Cutting through the fog: FinTech and the future of financial services

Emerging technologies such as blockchain, cryptocurrency and artificial intelligence are disrupting the landscape of the financial services industry, participants of Swinburne’s Financial Technologies (FinTech) panel discussion will hear.

Renowned FinTech leaders will come together at Swinburne University on April 5 to discuss the trends, challenges and opportunities of FinTech in Australia, moderated by Director of the Master of Financial Technologies, Dr Dimitrios Salampasis.

Dr Salampasis says the diverse backgrounds of the panellists will allow for rich and varied discussion about the future of FinTech and how they expect it to develop in their fields.

“Hearing from leaders of the Melbourne FinTech and business ecosystem will give the audience insight into how these technologies are being applied in a range of industries, from large financial services organisations, to smaller start-ups,” he says.

“It will be fantastic to have the opportunity to hear from these great leaders, giving students real-world examples of how FinTech is currently being utilised and where it is headed in the future.”

Drawing upon more than 10 years’ experience in FinTech, Dr Salampasis will facilitate the discussion of panel members, which includes:

  • Jonathan Hatch, Senior Adviser, Innovation Hub, Australian Securities and Investments Commission
  • Uli Klink, Managing Director Australia and New Zealand, Bluechain Pty Ltd
  • Matt Leeburn, Chief Commercial Officer, Moula

Delivered through Swinburne’s Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship (AGSE), the Master of Financial Technologies provides graduates with an understanding of the major emerging technologies and how they affect products, services and business models across financial services industries.
