When faced with disruptive technologies, the most effective and successful companies thrive by incorporating them into their business strategy.

Fintech is more than technology – it is a cultural mindset. It has been reported that 78 percent of CEOs in the financial services industry support the integration of fintech at all levels of management and 60 percent put fintech at the heart of their business strategy.

Financial globalization is already affecting everything from an individual’s ability to decrease currency risk to monetary policy. With the proliferation of robo-advisors and online financial products geared toward average citizens, we are on the cusp of major change.

Three leading global experts – Scott Picken, Thor Mitchell and Ting Li – have put together an exceptional SXSW panel proposal that dives deep into how financial technology is changing the way we invest and source capital.  In this panel, luminaries from China, the UK, South Africa and the U.S. will discuss the risks and opportunities new fintech is creating in both our local and global markets.

Ting Li, CEO of REORIENT, has spent more than 18 years in the financial industry and is currently spearheading REORIENT Group’s transition from a traditional brokerage firm to a fintech platform. She brings a broad perspective of the financial industry.

Scott Picken, founder and CEO of Wealth Migrate, is recognized as a thought leader in the growing global wealth movement. With his success integrating Wealth Migrate into the Chinese market, Picken offers a diverse and unprecedented global perspective of the impact fintech is having on the wealth movement.

Thor Mitchell is the chief product officer at Crowdcube, the world’s leading equity crowdfunding platform that has raised more than £170 million for over 400 companies from a network of more than 300,000 investors. He presents a unique view on the growth of equity crowdfunding, the benefits to entrepreneurs and investors and the impact on the broader market for financing private companies.
