Details

The Shanghai Institute of International Finance Center (SIIFC) at the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics and the University of Edinburgh Business School are organizing the Shanghai Fintech Conference in 2017.

China has become the centre and leader of global Fintech innovation and adoption. It is far and away the biggest market for digital payments, accounting for nearly half of the global total. For the period July 2015 to June 2016, Chinese Fintech investments in the market surged to US$8.8 billion, commanding the largest share of global investment in this sector. It is dominant in online lending, occupying three-quarters of the global market. The objective is to present top quality theoretical and empirical academic research on financial technologies.

The committee welcomes studies that provide cutting-edge insights into current research work. Specific topics and research questions can include, but are not limited to the interplay between financial technology and accounting, asset management, banking, entrepreneurship, economic growth, business ethics, capital markets, corporate governance, green finance, innovation, regulation, and other related topics.

There is no registration fee for speakers. Meals and conference materials will be provided free of charge. The conference also includes a forum which brings together key policy makers and top professionals.
