FinTech is a major development driver in the banking industry and will be indispensable for the implementation of financial transactions in the near future. For financial advisors, the question arises as to how digital products and FinTech affect their work.
Financial services (Fin) and technology (Tech) have always been closely linked. So it is not surprising that digitization in the past has been driven by banks, asset managers and insurance companies. More than 700 FinTechs in German-speaking countries are accelerating this development.
But how do digital products and FinTech affect the work of financial advisers? Do the associated technologies only change the rules of the game, or are new bases for financial advice created? And what stumbling blocks are there on the way from the classic system to the digital one?
In a presentation at the Professional Profession Congress 2018 in Mannheim on January 24, 2018, Frank Schwab, co-founder of the Frankfurt FinTech Forum and digitization pioneer, explains which changes and challenges are foreseeable in the future. In addition, the expert provides information on how to tap the new potential with the right know-how.
At the present time, it can be stated that investment advice is in a transitional stage. Nevertheless, the "digital transformation" in the consulting industry raises many questions. How will the tasks and working methods of financial advisors change? And to what extent will customer expectations change? In short, what do today's consultants have to expect to be prepared for the business of tomorrow?
In his presentation, Frank Schwab discusses these and other existential questions for the future of financial advisers as to why consultants should know about STP, API, AI, P2P, Robots, Crypto, Blockchain and other developments.
