The formal, dusty Finance world slowly fades away. New technologies have taken over the sector. Over the last few years, fin-tech startups have emerged and disrupted existing financial models, using technology to make it easier for people to invest, make payments, or get a loan.

During “The Future of Finance” ING and PwC will each present themselves and challenge you during their case sessions.
