FinTech Programmes

Financial technology (FinTech) is gradually changing how we conduct commerce, the way we make payment, how we choose and how services are delivered. The Government spares no efforts to support the development of FinTech in Hong Kong to drive its smart economy growth as an international financial hub. In the 2017 Policy Address, the Government pledged to establish Hong Kong as a hub for the application and setting of standards for cutting-edge FinTech. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority, the Securities and Futures Commission, and the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance have already established their respective dedicated FinTech platforms to enhance communication between regulators and the FinTech community. Invest Hong Kong has also established the FinTech team to assist the startups, investors and R&D institutions from the Mainland and overseas in establishing their presence in Hong Kong. To support financial innovation, Cyberport has launched its designated incubation programme to support 150 FinTech startups and opened a 3 000-square metre dedicated FinTech Smart-Space in 2016.

If you want to pursue study on FinTech technologies such as distributed ledger technology, big data analytics, Blockchain, etc., the followings are FinTech programmes offered by local tertiary institutions. Please visit the official websites of corresponding programmes for details.
