"Fintech, Machine Learning, Blockchain – How new technologies drive sustainable finance and impact investing"
How new technologies drive sustainable finance and impact investing.
Several large-scale trends are fundamentally changing consumer expectations. Sustainability influences more and more consumer decisions as millennials gain spending and savings power. Digitization raises buyer expectations towards Amazon-like convenience and Uber-like affordability of exclusive services. High degrees of personalization and personal relevance are seen as quality requirements for products and services in ever more industries.
The financial world is not immune to these changes. The impact on the investment management industry is accelerated by an increasing societal conscience for sustainability concerns as well as by calls for more transparency after financial crises and large scale scandals have eroded trust into banks, policy makers and corporations.
Technology bears the potential to leverage these trends to disrupt finance in general and investment management in particular. Digitization can automate important wealth management functions, allow for better consideration of sustainability aspects in investment decisions, and increase transparency and control. Lower cost to serve enables the industry to unlock the market potential of retail investors.
This presentation discusses how digital business models can be a catalyst for sustainable finance and impact investing. We will portray the role of web technologies, machine learning and blockchain in this transition. We will demonstrate how the commercialization of these technologies can redefine the role of the investment manager.
