This research initiative, jointly launched by the World Economic Forum and the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF) at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, explores the future of global fintech. The initiative aims to respond to current public and private sector needs for more robust data and empirical evidence on fintech that can inform market development and facilitate evidence-based regulation. By collaborating with a global group of innovative and relevant fintechs, this effort looks to produce valuable research outputs that highlight global market trends, generate regional fintech insights, and assess how fintech activities are impacting consumers, SMEs and financial inclusion.
This initiative will also bring together innovators, financial services incumbents, regulators, and development institutions through a series of roundtables and workshops to share learnings, disseminate knowledge, and forge meaningful public-private partnerships.
