The Evolution of Fintech
Has the Robo-threat retreated OR is it morphing into something else?

Technology moves quickly and doesn’t much care about the existing adviser landscape. While the theory of robo-advice being a threat to advisers was quickly dismissed, an enormous amount has been going on in the background.
Come and listen to two leading commentators bring us up-to-date on what is happening and what we can expect.

Over a 20 year career in financial services Binu has assumed various roles including as chief executive of FundSource for many years culminating in its successful sale to the NZX and subsequently heading up business strategy for Nikko Asset Management in New Zealand. In 2013 he struck out on his own as a fintech entrepreneur. He founded SavvyKiwi a KiwiSaver app in 2015, and more recently the financial product shopping site PocketWise. He also founded NZ's annual fintech event Finnotec in 2016.

Jonnie is part of the product team at Asteron Life, driving innovative product design. Outside of work he spends time talking and thinking about artificial intelligence and its impact on business, recently focusing on AI chatbots.
