Fintech in Asia: Boom or Bust?


A Conversation with Melissa Guzy of Arbor Ventures

Fintech in Asia

Fintech is changing and redesigning financial markets and our everyday monetary behaviour – and nowhere more so than in Asia, where the lack of financial infrastructure provides a fertile ground for new innovations. Asia Pacific received more than $14bn in investments last year and China and India are among the largest fintech ecosystems. But there are also signs of trouble: The sharp slowdown in tech investments especially in China has not spared the fintech industry.

Why is Asia leading the fintech revolution? Where is the Asian fintech sector heading? And what opportunities does this create for Switzerland’s financial industry? Melissa Guzy, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Arbor Ventures, one of Asia’s leading fintech investors, will share her knowledge and insights.
