Come and find out the skills and talent needed to succeed in Fintech

About this Event

This event is the first in a series which looks at the various facets of Fintech. It coincides with the launch of the new MSc in Finance, Technology and Policy .

This panel event will comprise a series of brief practitioner presentations from different sectors of the Finance industry – big and small, incumbents and disruptors - to illustrate the different levels of adoption/application and the corresponding opportunities and challenges. A uniting theme will be the need for talent to take advantage of all the opportunities. Do we have the talent in Scotland? Are we educating and training our students to have the right skill set? What is the right skill set?

The event starts at 18:30 (coffee and registration from 18:00), and will be followed by a networking drinks reception from 20:00.
