Blue as FinTech partner for Hong Kong FinTech Week
In support of the FinTech development in Hong Kong, Blue participated in the Hong Kong FinTech Week 2018 presented by InvestHK as a FinTech partner.
Our CEO Mr. Charles Hung was invited as one of the panel speakers to share insights on the topic of “Insurtech: Reshaping a 300 Years Old Industry?"
“I think in the immediate future the ‘next big thing’ will simply be to see technology applied to the whole end-to-end journey, rather than just a specific portion. Technology should and will be central to the whole customer journey from marketing and education to sales and servicing. It is not just to put some products online - we have to think very differently from backend to the consumer facing side and offer a full digital insurance journey,” Charles commented on the application of emerging tech.
Hong Kong FinTech Week is the world's first cross-border financial technology (FinTech) event, taking place in Hong Kong, Asia's financial capital, and in Shenzhen, China's Silicon Valley. It attracted more than 8,000 senior executives and featuring over 200 of the world's top FinTech founders, investors, regulators, and academics.
