How can fintech be a positive agent for social change?

7th June 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Navigation

This expert discussion is part of The Scotsman’s content series on the rapidly growing fintech sector in Scotland, and the opportunities and challenges it presents. The debate aims to place fintech in a wider context and ask how it can deliver positive benefits to society – if it can overcome some of the trust and confidence issues which currently surround technology and big data generally.

The discussion will be chaired by David Lee of Scotsman Conferences and held in front of an audience of fintech students, businesses and a range of other partners in Scotland’s fintech community. The key points of the discussion will be captured and reported in The Scotsman and on scotsman.com, as both online editorial and video content. It will be segmented into 5 main topics of 15-20 minutes each:

The positive impact of fintech on society and people’s lives
Can fintech be a force for financial inclusion and better mental health?
How is fintech rising to the challenges of fragile consumer trust and confidence issues in technology and data?
What opportunities does fintech offer in a rapidly-changing world of work and can it deliver enough of the skilled people we need?
The dark side of fintech
