(Il Sole 24 Ore Radiocor Plus) - Milan, Oct. 18 - Fintech represents a growing ecosystem: investments in the sector in 2021 amounted to $201 billion and involved payment systems, redefinition of the banking system, tokenization of assets, and the creation of digital currencies. This change in capital market infrastructure, however, requires adequate backstage evolution of the traditional banking and financial system to prevent and manage fraud phenomena.
These issues will be discussed on Thursday, October 20, starting at 9:30 a.m., during the Fintech Day organized by 24 ORE Events and Sole 24 Ore in collaboration with H-Farm College.
The event, which will be held via live streaming, will be opened by Sole 24 Ore Editor-in-Chief Fabio Tamburini; the first topic to be addressed will be the role of Fintech in the redesign of the financial industry: outlining the goals already achieved and the challenges still to be faced will be Marco Giorgino, Professor of Financial Institutions and Markets and Scientific Director of the Fintech & Insurtech Observatory of the Politecnico di Milano.
An overview of the investment market in the face of the progressive technological development of the sector will then be offered, with the intervention of Giovanni Sandri, Country Head of BlackRock Italy.
