MAIN CONFERENCE

Capital Markets

The pandemic has been impacting the global economy across all industries including trading; however, not necessarily in a negative way. Trading has been the most resilient and is coming out of the crisis even stronger through attracting significant inflows and first-time investors. FinTechs providing personal finance services have been registering a streak of successes. American SoFi has expanded overseas after acquiring Hong Kong-based investing app 8 Securities earlier this year. Acorns registered a recording number of sign ups in March, while Robinhood managed to secure $280M in funding, skyrocketing their valuation up to $8.3Bn in valuation. What’s next for capital markets in a post-Covid world? How are we going to accelerate digitization of different product offerings?
