FinTech is transforming both the demand and delivery of financial services. Exponential growth in mobile penetration across the globe has further propelled the adoption of these technologies, particularly in India. Consumers and businesses have benefited significantly from FinTech by expanding their reach, lowering costs, and improving the accuracy of decisions. It is widely acknowledged that it has dramatically altered lending decisions, payment systems such as UPI, and the ways of financing ventures by enabling crowdfunding. The widespread adoption of these technologies has, in turn, resulted in unprecedented growth in entrepreneurial activity in this field. FinTech ventures are already posing stiff challenges to traditional banks by offering more cost-effective solutions for payments, lending, and many other services that reduce overall financial costs. However, the technological innovations also pose an unprecedented set of challenges and issues for consumer protection and the regulation of FinTech firms. The objective of the conference is to bring together researchers, regulators, and practitioners to a common platform for discussion on important topics and agenda in the FinTech domain.
