Future of Money: Neobanking

Join our next “Future of Money” event on Neobanking! A buzzword in the FinTech community, it’s taking the spotlight in the news and media, on the global level.

The “Future of Money” event series is coming back this year with a new topic – Neobanking! A buzzword in the FinTech community, it’s taking spotlight in the news and media on the global level.

In the last few years, we’ve seen a massive shift in the finance industry as digital payments are emerging at large scale. Customers are moving away from physical banks and physical cash towards online banking and wallets. A neobank is a kind of digital bank that offers digital or mobile-only financial services. Rather than locating physically at a specific location, neobanking is entirely online. Neobank can provide the fluidity and the easy accessibility that traditional banks cannot.

The “Future of Money” FinTech series by Swissnex in China is dedicated to bringing together the top academics and opinion leaders from both Switzerland and China, two leading countries in FinTech industry and offers intellectual and professional exchange in the form of panel discussion. As both countries are global key players in FinTech, these events provide an ideal opportunity to share savoir-faire in this field and learn about new cutting-edge technologies.
