Trends Rise to the Top at FinovateAsia

FinovateAsia, our showcase of the newest technology from the Asia Pacific region, is coming to Hong Kong next week on November 7 and 8 (and there’s still time to register). Each of the 32 presenting companies will bring a unique set of technologies, focusing on a range of fintech trends.

So what’s hot in Asia Pacific in 2017? Here’s a look at the themes that will dominate the stage next week:

Top three trends:

  • Data analytics
    Many fintechs are leveraging big data about user behavior, transactions, and their online footprint in order to underwrite loans, provide a more personalized customer experience, or monitor app usage to authenticate the user even after they’ve logged into a session.
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning
    These two trends go hand-in-hand and have proven to be the hottest ideas in fintech this year. Companies are leveraging these technologies to engage with customers via chatbots, to automate investing algorithms that learn over time to optimize returns, and to prevent fraudulent activity.
  • Personalization
    With so much consumer data already online, plus all the information created from daily transactions, banks have the opportunity to assist and engage consumers in new ways. Banks can help clients understand their spending habits, anticipate what’s next, and find new ways to save or pay down debt. In addition, banks can leverage customer information to assess their needs and offer them relevant products in the exact place and time they’ll need it.

Get a sneak peek of the specific technologies the companies will showcase and be sure to take a look at the extended agenda. We’re intermixing the company demos with keynote speakers, panel discussions, and an exhibition of fintech accelerators. We’ll see you next week at the JW Marriott in Hong Kong!
