Demystifying the next paradigm shift in global financial services
 
Overview
 
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. You will see how Alibaba and Starbucks affected payments and how they became a financial services company. You will focus on the risks and opportunities, but mostly, you 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, behavioural 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.

This course tells the story of enablers and disruptors in the financial industry. Bill Gates in 1994 made the following statement: ‘Banking is necessary, banks are not’.

By now, we are in the midst of a technological revolution that is fundamentally altering the way we live, work and relate to one another. Its scale, scope and complexity will create a transformation humankind has not experienced before (adapted from Klaus Schwab, WEF). Whilst we do not yet know how this will unfold, we do get a sense of direction. The First Industrial Revolution used water and steam power to mechanise production. The Second used electric power to create mass production. The Third used electronics and information technology to automate production. Now a Fourth Industrial Revolution is characterised by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.

Industry 4.0 is affecting the financial industry already. Whilst banks are using technology to improve and automate their services to clients, $4.7 trillion in revenue is at risk of being displaced by new technology-enabled entrants. FinTech is changing rapidly with new sub-sectors emerging all the time, drawing in new names and organisations who are taking a customer centric view of financial services. Already, the coffee shop across the street has moved from being a user to a provider of financial services.

Curious to find out how this works?

What are you and your organisation doing about this?

Is your business able to cope with the continuous reduction in fees and revenues whilst expenses for digitalisation rocket?

How are you innovating your business model to be able generate revenue from alternative sources?

This course provides an overview of the current status quo and aims to ask the right questions to adjust to the business model to survive in the future. Furthermore, you will understand the technological breakthrough to digitalise assets, starting with currencies.
