Digitalization in Financial Investment Services Grand Ballroom, 3F, Conrad Hotel, Seoul
  • Time 10:00~16:00
  • Host Korea Capital Market Institute
The financial investment services industry has faced unprecedented changes sparked by digital innovation. Admittedly, high entry barriers, business expertise, and customer loyalty used to deter changes in the industry. More recently, however, the global financial investment services industry is converging with up-to-date ICT technologies, making ceaseless innovation in the direction towards greater client benefits via fast and cost-effective services that better cater to customer needs.
To cope with such changes proactively, global financial services providers have been not only supplying innovative growth firms with venture capital but also increasing their investment in ICT infrastructure for every corner of their business from investment banking and asset management to product sales and proprietary trading. In the meantime, global exchanges and other market infrastructure providers have spearheaded digital innovation, aggressively merging ICT firms as well as providing innovative intermediary services and regtech solutions. It is regrettable that Korea’s financial investment services industry has yet to demonstrate a genuine interest in this area.

Against this background, Korea Capital Market Institute holds a conference titled “Digitalization in Financial Investment Services” under which to look at the current trends and best practices of digital innovation and present future directions for Korea’s financial investment services industry.
