Building on recent developments, this half-day conference provides deeper insights to current and emerging industry issues, best practices, and the pathways forward.

Leading practitioners and industry participants directed a seminar plus panellist format grouped around three core themes:

Speakers and panellists drawn from key players in the industry include:

Henri Arslanian, PwC and Fintech Association of Hong Kong

Sumit Indwar, Linklaters
Julia Charlton / Kim Larkin, Charltons
