Eventbrite - Why Future Bankers will be Designers, Programmers, and Data Scientists

The FinTech revolution is having a profound impact on the financial services industry. Citi estimates that 30% of banking jobs may disappear over the next 10 years. Large tech firms like Facebook, Amazon, Tencent and Xiaomi are all tapping into the financial services space. 

Based on this reality, what is happening in the finance ecosystem in Hong Kong? Does Hong Kong have a promising FinTech future? Should bankers be worried, and can Hong Kong remain the regional financial hub amid the FinTech revolution?  

In this talk, Henri Aslanian will explain the Fintech landscape in Hong Kong and discuss the skills that bankers of the future will need.

為什麼設計師、程序員和數據科學家會取代未來的銀行家?

金融科技革命正深深的影響著金融服務界。花旗銀行預計,未來十年內,百分之三十的銀行職位可能會消失。與此同時,Facebook、亞馬遜、騰訊和小米等大型科技公司正在積極開拓金融服務的領域。

面臨這個趨勢,香港的金融生態正在起什麼變化?香港金融科技業的發展前景如何?銀行家應否擔心?而香港又能否保持國際金融中心的地位?

TEDx講者Henri Aslanian將為我們講解香港金融科技的狀況,並討論新一代銀行家須具備什麼技能。

這個講座將會以英文進行。
