- "This great new book offers valuable and timely insights on FinTech from various vantage points. Written by a cohort of distinguished academics and practitioners, the reader is treated to constructive analysis and presentation of developments in the field of FinTech and its potential impact on financial services, and banks in particular, as well as the economy and society at large. Anyone interested in the origins and meaning of FinTech and how it has emerged as a disruptive though arguably positive influence from a competition perspective will enjoy reading this book. Apart from the incredible opportunities afforded by FinTech, this book examines the potential for both old and new risks to arise, and identifies challenges facing policy makers and regulators to secure their multiple objectives, such as, greater competition, financial stability, consumer protection and welfare gains. This book would be of particular interest as a text to contemporary business school courses looking to explore the role of financial technology as a disruptor to banking, finance and insurance sectors, as well as to the more casual reader with an interest in getting up to speed on this emergent and exciting area" -Professor Martin Meyer, Vice Rector for International Affairs and Director of InnoLab (Professor of Innovation), University of Vaasa, Finland Timothy King is Director of the Centre for Quantitative Finance at the University of Kent.
