In the context of the fourth revolution, the digital revolution, which is likely to have a dramatic impact on the investment industry, four prominent academic institutions renowned for the quality and relevant of their educational and research programmes in finance and technology – EDHEC-Risk Institute, KAIST, Princeton and Tsinghua Universities – are partnering for the first time. Together, they will host an international series of rotational conferences on financial technologies and offer a forum that will facilitate discussion among all interested parties (academics, practitioners and regulators) around the world.
The conferences will take place annually. The first event took place on 26 April 2017 with the Four-University Rotating FinTech Conference: Wealth Management Systems for Individual Investors, on Princeton Campus, jointly organised by EDHEC-Risk Institute and Princeton University ORFE department.
The second conference has been held by KAIST University in Seoul on 12-13 April 2018. The agenda is available here.
The third conference will be held by EDHEC-Risk Institute in Spring 2019.
