Why are we sponsoring the event?
Cutting-edge innovations in blockchain technology, smart contracts, cryptocurrencies and robo-advice are shifting the landscape of financial services and the companies that make use of them. Each of these technologies promises a wealth of opportunities, as well as new challenges in regulation and enforcement. As proud supporters of the inaugural New Zealand Future of Finance Conference, we're looking forward to sharing ideas, connecting and looking ahead to explore some of the opportunities and challenges that disruptive technologies may bring and what this could mean for New Zealand.
We are keen to understand your own challenges in this area and in the face of increasingly stringent regulatory environments, work with you to navigate your positioning for what's to come. With our own FinTech expertise drawn from across our Banking and Finance, Corporate Advisory and ICT teams, whether you are a small tech start-up or a large corporate, we can provide the breadth of knowledge necessary to advise in this emerging and disruptive field.
