LONDON, ENGLAND, August 11, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Fintech is booming, from Revolut, a 5-year old Fintech being valued at $33bn, to Robinhood, an 8-year old startup having its IPO and even JP Morgan acquiring Nutmeg to launch a digital bank. But with so much information, how can you get the right knowledge without spending months to learn? This is Fintech 360.
With the fintech industry accelerating at lightning speed, it's easy to feel left behind. It can be a gargantuan task to find the right information and gain quality knowledge in the industry where startups are pushing their agendas and banks have their own views. There is just too much information floating around and not enough time on people's hands to grasp it all.
CFTE is launching the Fintech 360 programme on its platform, THINK, in response to the increasing need for continuous learning that fits our busy schedules with routine courses in short bursts. Everyday, Fintech 360 will release 15 minutes worth of content for 30 days from industry leaders who explain what is Fintech and combine sound, structured frameworks with real-life applications from their own experience. Everyday different concepts in fintech will be covered through a variety of formats, whether it be video lessons, interviews with experts, quizzes, real-life case studies or reading material.
This content will encompass five key sectors related to Fintech: Fintech Foundations, AI in Finance, Open Banking, Payments, RegTech.
These sectors will be broken down into bite-sized modules covering topics like emerging technologies, trends, innovations, business models, regulations and data to help one build the in-demand skills needed today and also learn how to confidently apply such technologies appropriately and effectively at work. With just a commitment of 15 minutes a day, the programme will help learners advance their knowledge in the constantly evolving world of fintech.
Fintech 360 modules are created to give learners quality learning material and help them understand real-life applications directly from the industry's leading experts, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and executives from top companies such as Anne Boden, CEO of Starling Bank, Rob Frohwein, CEO & Co-Founder of Kabbage, Jean-Philippe Desbiolles, Global VP for Data, Cognitive & AI at IBM, Shameek Kundu, Former Chief Data Officer at Standard Chartered and Head of FS & Chief Strategy Officer at Truera, Ayesha Khanna, Founder & CEO of ADDO AI, Mellisa Guzy, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Arbor Ventures among other leading professionals. Learning with Fintech 360 also allows one to take a step beyond traditional learning by interacting with experts and learners with forums and discussions.
All-in-all, the programme is best suited for those looking to innovate and transform their jobs, those curious to learn new ways to apply technology in finance, those from non-tech backgrounds who want to leverage technology or students looking to boost their employability in financial services.
