Day 3 Agenda: Digitalisation and Innovation in the Capital Markets Summit

Digitalisation in its many forms is rapidly reshaping the capital markets, not only in terms of the markets themselves but also in the business models of individual financial institutions. This is being driven by the explosion in FinTech, as well as the confluence of technologies such as AI, machine learning, cloud computing and big data. Day Three examines the consequences.
