Event Details
In the middle of a technological revolution within the financial services industries, many job functions today could be replaced by new technologies in the foreseeable future on top of the offshoring we see today from Hong Kong to lower cost locations.  Our conference would highlight to participants how the technological development of blockchain, artificial intelligence, robo-advisor and algorithmic trading among many things could cause many current skillsets and experiences to be redundant. 

In our 2nd HKSFA Career Conference, we would have distinguished speakers to share:

·  What are Hong Kong's future fintech development and career prospects going forward?

·
  What type of fintech positions are most in demand for new talents and what are the rewards and career progressions? 

·  What are the core skillsets that CFA charterholders can possess that would stay universally relevant going forward and what type of experience and personal qualities are relevant for CFA charterholders entering fintech industry? 

·  How do CFA charterholders position themselves to take advantage of disruptions into opportunities and how do Hong Kong position itself to better compete with other Asian markets?

·  What type of learning and development could CFA charterholders take up to be more technology savvy?

·  With opportunities come with risks, what type of regulatory trends and developments like dealing with cybersecurity and AML could become new prominent going forward? 

Our conference would also explore how CFA charterholders can present themselves more strategically and do business via social media to compete for job opportunities in the new economy.
