This course is an introduction to the FinTech (financial technology) industry, providing insight into its disruption, innovation and the opportunities it presents. This course introduces some of the basic concepts of FinTech. We have all heard the term being used, but what does it really mean?

We cover key definitions related to the rapidly growing industry and dive into the core segments that make up the Fintech landscape. Each segment is presented with appropriate case studies to highlight how through the use of alternative technology such firms are challenging the dominance of the traditional firm.

We have also included a summary of current and potential further touchpoint within the legal sector so legal practitioners can help relate to the impact of disruptive technologies to their industry.
