Description: We consider the financial services industry in an era of rapid disruption. We analyze how firms like Square, PayPal, Stripe, Lending Club, OnDeck or Robinhood are disrupting the value chain in financial services. We seek to understand what drives the development of disruptive platforms and why incumbents are missing out on these opportunities. We consider funding sources; competition from Asian fintech dragons as they redefine financial services through e-commerce and social payments; and the democratizing of access. Finally, we consider the next wave of technologies poised to accelerate the disruption including blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and robotics. After completing this course, you will understand how financial technology disruptors are capturing revenue pools of incumbent firms in payments, consumer and small business lending, wealth management, and advisory services.
