In the context of the fourth revolution, the digital revolution, which is likely to have a dramatic impact on the investment industry, four prominent academic institutions renowned for the quality and relevance of their educational and research programmes in finance and technology – EDHEC-Risk Institute, KAIST, Princeton and Tsinghua Universities – have joined forces. Together, they have been hosting a series of rotational conferences on financial technologies to offer a forum to facilitate discussion among all interested parties (academics, practitioners and regulators) round the world.
