Synopsis We trust mobile technologies to receive, store and share unprecedented amounts of real-time and personal information in return for bundled goods and services from countless tech operators. We trust financial institutions to handle more money, across more borders, via more middlemen than ever before. Under the hood, countless lawyers and compliance officers in FinTech firms analyse and unbundle services into electronic contracts, ensure compliance and trouble-shoot, and, then, act as product designers and process gatekeepers for both the ‘Fin’ and the ‘Tech’. We go under the hood in this session.

Speaker Bio Gary Tiu has spent more than 15 years as corporate counsel in financial institutions and private practice in Asia. He was, most recently, general counsel of Yunfeng Financial Group (376.HK), and, previously, Head of Asia Legal and Compliance for Cantor Fitzgerald and BGC Partners, and legal counsel for Macquarie Securities Group and CITIC Capital.
