The Global COVID-19 Fintech Market Rapid Assessment – Virtual

November 30, 2020 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm EST

On behalf of the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, the World Economic Forum and the World Bank Group, we are delighted to extend an invitation to join us for the launch session of the Global COVID-19 FinTech Market Rapid Assessment Study.

The study has gathered empirical data from 1,385 FinTech firms that are currently operating in 169 jurisdictions globally with the aim of helping to understand: the impact of the global pandemic on the FinTech markets, the response of the FinTech industry to the challenges of COVID-19, the most pressing FinTech regulatory and policy issues. This study was supported by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and the Ministry of Luxembourg.

This live streamed session will first and foremost present the key findings of what is one of the largest empirical studies on the impact of COVID-19 on the global FinTech industry to date. A panel discussion will follow to discuss the implications of the study findings on the development of FinTech markets around the world both during COVID-19 and beyond.

This virtual session will take place 30 November 2020 from 7am EST – 830am EST. (13:00-14:30 CET). Add to your calendar below.
