Publisher Description

Praise for LEARNING PRACTICAL FINTECH FROM SUCCESSFUL COMPANIES

"Throughout my career I've seen the world of finance transformed by technology, from the earliest days of online lending to the current innovations happening with blockchain and cryptocurrency. I believe we're at a critical point in history where a new Internet of Value is starting to emerge, and I'm excited to see so many talented entrepreneurs tackling problems in global finance today."

CHRIS LARSEN, Cofounder and Executive Chairman of Ripple "Blockchain technology is changing the way the world does business. This book offers an inside look at how institutions from all corners of financial services and other areas of commerce are collaborating with software firms like R3 to re- engineer the infrastructure that enables money, goods, and information to flow around the globe."

DAVID RUTTER, Founder, Chief Executive Officer of R3 "When we think about FinTech, we often think about New York, Silicon Valley, and London, but this book tackles the awakening dragon that is Asian FinTech. Do yourself a huge favor and read this book. Asia is where the real FinTech evolution is happening."

BRETT KING, Author of Augmented and BANK 4.0, Host of the Breaking Banks Radio Show, Founder of Moven

The financial industry is taking a major step forward in the evolution of FinTech on a scale that will redefine the most basic assumptions about how we live, in the same way the Internet and smartphones did. Financial services providers must already be preparing for the population-wide adaptation of FinTech 2.0, and Learning Practical FinTech from Successful Companies opens up an insider's view of how today's most disruptive thought leaders are shaping and predicting the next ways we manage wealth. The esteemed Yoshitaka Kitao, CEO of SBI Holdings, leads an impressive group of contributing writers in sharing their personal experiences at the forward-edge of FinTech, including in-depth discussions on the various types of technologies driving the industry. Since the SBI Group first put financial services on the Internet by offering online banking, securities, and insurance, there have been continual advancements in offering more convenience to customers through technology. Artificial intelligence (AI), big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and robotics have all served to further those goals by sharing data, and now blockchain technology makes it possible to exchange value anywhere in the world over the Internet. Inside, see firsthand why financial institutions need to get ahead of blockchain to stay relevant and survive in tomorrow's reality. This brilliantly designed guide offers unmatched value in the real world by providing: Personal accounts of the conception and strategic operations of some of the most innovative financial organizations responsible for the way wealth is managed today High-level insights into blockchain explained in practical terms, including why low-value, high- frequency payments can be settled at a fraction of traditional costs An up-to-date exploration of robo-advisory services that illustrates how they're changing the fundamental purpose of wealth managers Customers are attracted and loyal to financial services firms that give them what they want, and Learning Practical FinTech from Successful Companies shows you how to bring them to you.
