The focus of the latest issue of Frontiers in Finance is on having the courage to change.
Governments are recognising the value of fintech and the importance of this type of innovation.
Fintech is changing the world of finance and Ireland is uniquely positioned to be a key player. Ireland is recognised as a key hub and one of a few key locations with a proven track record in both financial services and technology.
The world’s top 10 global software companies have chosen Ireland as a centre of excellence, alongside all of the top 10 “born on the internet” companies.
When developing the International Financial Strategy (IFS) in Ireland for 2020, the government envisaged Ireland as a leading global location for specialist international financial services, building on the country’s strength in innovative technologies, data analytics, governance risk and compliance.
The Irish Government’s 2017 action plan recently released contains a number of new actions and measures to drive continuous improvement in the operating environment and competitiveness of Ireland’s IFS sector. This edition of Frontiers in Finance contains articles ranging from digital labour, digital accuracy and mortgage innovation to governments and fintech that key decision makers in the industry may find insightful.
