Gautam Jain, Global Head, Digitisation & Client Access, Transaction banking, Standard Chartered, speaks about how the role of fintech is continuously evolving, and how blockchain can change the industry.
So good to see the word "enabler", a positive thing, rather than "disruptor", generally perceived as negative. In these times where collaboration is almost essential, disruption sets the wrong tone. The purpose of innovation is at least one (or all) of three
