Come join this fireside chat with CSOP Asset Management (“CSOP”) as they share their view on how fintech can play a collaborative role in the financial ecosystem. Innovation is often misunderstood and underappreciated within financial institutions. Yet, it is imperative that companies must continue to innovate to remain relevant in today’s fast changing world. Why is it so hard to drive innovation in financial institutions? Should large traditional financial institutions look upon them as adversaries or allies?
