Wrapping up our first day of the Hong Kong FinTech Week roadshow across China, while travelling 350 km/h by speed train. One week - three cities, we started from Beijing.
It was exciting to meet such an interesting and diverse group of FinTech professionals in country’s capital. There is a genuine interest from Beijing FinTech firms towards Hong Kong.
Financial technology has quickly become a mainstream in China. No country can compete with China in speed and scale of the FinTech adoption. China is also advanced in innovative business models and in a smart use of digital channels for distribution of their products among the end customers.
Quite a few Chinese companies are starting to look for opportunities to expand their FinTech business overseas. And Hong Kong could be a perfect destination to launch international operations.
Our next stop - Hangzhou, the home town of Jack Ma’s Alibaba Group and its sister Ant Financial - the largest FinTech company in the world. Stay tuned!
