Digital signatures

The world is no stranger to digital signatures. It is in fact, one of the more common technologies used today but can digital signatures replace paper and if so, what are some of the security measures to ensure that consumers transact in a secure and seamless environment? Another interesting topic in the agenda will be the role of blockchain technology in ensuring that confidentiality and privacy are not compromised. 

Cashless Payment

As the world becomes more accustomed to cashless payment modes, more and more options are innovating to cater to such payment trends. What are the technologies guiding these transformations in payments and transactions and how will it evolve in the future? What is the role that cryptocurrency plays?

With these changes taking place, it becomes more important than ever for industry players and regulators to understand the concerns and challenges involved, and the best approach to take. The future of money will be top of the agenda at the FinTech festival as the finance industry gears up to embrace and adapt to what lies ahead.

FinTech Opportunities in ASEAN

From paperless customer due diligence to digital means of presenting product offerings, the agility of financial technologies allow for the delivery of customer-centric solutions in a faster, more timely and cost effective manner. With great interest around this area, there is much to look forward to in terms of effective and efficient ways to connect with customers and serving their needs better, while ensuring business policies are not compromised.

And finally, there’s the industry networking platform which allows industry players to interact with each other in a relaxed setting, exchange ideas and find opportunities to collaborate, embrace new technologies and facilitate further transformation of FinTech within business today.

The Hawksford team will be attending. To meet with us there, contact Marcus Hinkley, Head of Private Client Asia, Matthew Wilkinson, Director of Global Operations and Jacqueline Low, COO Corporate Services, South-East Asia.
