Course Content

The current state of the cryptocurrency market and the potential impact of recent events on regulatory progress will be discussed in this chapter. The potential for systemic risks within the cryptocurrency market, particularly in the event of a major player collapsing, has led to calls for enhanced regulation by the Bank of England’s financial policy committee. Despite these challenges, the integration of cryptocurrency assets into mainstream finance may pose potential threats.
Lorenzo looks into the Insurtech market which has experienced significant growth in 2021, with a 38% increase in the size of the market. It provides opportunities for embedded insurance, invisible insurance, and the streamlining of traditional insurance processes. The adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and the increasing focus on health insurance are key trends within the Insurtech market. Sponsorship of sports teams by Insurtech startups is also seen as a way to attract the right audience and gain exposure.
In this chapter, we will be exploring the current state of fintech investment, including the trends and changes compared to previous years. We will also discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the fintech industry and the potential for future growth.

FAQ

CFTE’s brand new online learning platform! THINK produces and delivers dozens of bite-sized courses which will allow you to get a good understanding and be constantly updated about everything concerning Fintech!

Disruptive technologies and innovations don’t come on their own. They bring significant transformations and challenges both in terms of culture, people, jobs, environment and governance. Therefore we believe these topics can’t be separated from one another. 

The courses offered on THINK have slightly different approaches to the topics. You’ll find evergreen foundational-level courses which will help you get a good understanding without any prior knowledge, but you’ll also find courses that explore the players in the respective ecosystems, courses that explore the regulations of a certain field and even courses that dive deep into specific companies’ way of operating!

THINK is meant for all those professionals who want to be kept up to date with the latest developments in these fields, but don’t necessarily have the time to go through countless articles or newspapers.

Technology is deeply transforming the way financial institutions do business and manage operations. Understanding these shifts will allow you to benefit from them, and not miss out on any potential opportunities for you and your organisation.

Users and customers nowadays are more aware than ever about the environmental and social impact of their choices, as a consequence companies are putting more attention on these topics even at the cost of reduced financial performances.

Digital Assets, Blockchain, Decentralisation and Web3 are still in a very early stage. They may reshape and revolutionise our current business models, therefore we believe it’s worth  paying special attention to the innovations they bring to the table.

Understanding how technology works, its potential and its limitations is essential to properly embrace it and leverage it. Even non-technical professionals need to get a comprehensive understanding of these tools, as they will have an increasingly important role in our lives.
