Experts discuss opportunities and risks in the digital transformation of financial services on Oct. 27

Financial technology (Fintech) has streamlined operations and enhanced convenience but also disrupted the financial services industry. Banks and other incumbent financial firms are experiencing competitive pressure as start-ups such as Paypal’s Venmo, Square, Ally and Robinhood attract new users to their platforms. Developments in blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies are leading to services and investment choices that were unimaginable 5-10 years ago.

Join the next Lifelong Lerner Webinar Series on Wednesday, Oct. 27, from noon to 1 p.m., during which faculty and alumni from the University of Delaware and the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics will examine the digitization of financial services and explore the new risks and opportunities for banks, regulators, technology firms and entrepreneurs. The webinar series, hosted by the Lerner College, is free and open to the public but registration is required to attend.

UD’s Lerner College and College of Engineering will house high-tech labs and research and teaching facilities in the new FinTech Innovation Hub on UD’s Science Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Campus. The FinTech Innovation Hub represents a public-private partnership between UD, Delaware Technology Park and Discover Bank.
