2018 has been another incredible year so far for fintech – overall investment across VC, PE and M&A deals at mid-year were already well above last year’s total investment results, and there’s no indication this trend is slowing down. In our panel session, we will bring together a global group of fintech industry experts to explore investment trends from a regional and thematic perspective. Together, we will address questions like:

— How is the fintech market maturing and diversifying?
— Why is Asia becoming a standout region in terms of fintech investment?
— What is driving the increasing focus on regtech?
— How is open banking propelling fintech activity globally?
— What do we predict for the rest of 2018 and beyond?

Attendees will also be given a sneak peek into some key data shaping KPMG’s next edition of the Pulse of Fintech.

Moderator: Ian Pollari, KPMG
Panelists: Terence Singh, Matchi; Niall Cameron, HSBC; Anton Ruddenklau, KPMG; Jon Davey, NAB
