Course Content

In this course, Marco will be discussing the current state of quantum technologies and their applications in financial services.
The three main areas of development for quantum computing in financial services are optimisation, simulation, and machine learning. Optimisation and simulation are already in use in the financial sector, but the machine learning aspect is still in its early stages.
The financial sector can benefit greatly from quantum computing in terms of faster and more powerful solutions to mathematical problems. Marco mentions that financial institutions should prepare for the era of quantum computing by having a small group of people, a “quantum champion,” who can understand the limitations and opportunities of quantum computers.
Financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, Standard Chartered, and Citigroup are already setting themselves up to be prepared for the use of quantum computers when they become available. Marco states that as the machines and algorithms develop, the financial sector will see more and more use of quantum technologies.

Latest THINK Courses


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.
