Course goals

This course provides an overview of FinTech (financial technology) from three perspectives. First, we will approach FinTech from financial markets and institutions point of view and deals with various examples of FinTech products/services, e.g. payment systems, P2P (peer-to-peer) lending, blockchain, smart contract. Second, we will discuss the drivers and factors of FinTech development and growth. Here, we pay particular attention to regulatory incentives and encouragements such as sandbox. Third, we will compare financial markets in the world and identify the ‘Fin’ part of the FinTech. Ultimately, we ask ourselves if this buzzword ‘FinTech’ is suitable to characterise the contemporary global financial economics.
