Fintech, a Catalyst for Growth During COVID-19 (6 May 2020)


Fintech, a Catalyst for Growth During COVID-19

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been a game changer in terms of customer behaviour for the foreseeable future. A world where social distancing becomes an essential part of the “new normal” cannot function seamlessly without financial innovation or Fintech. Home delivery and e-commerce platforms are set to grow at a faster pace, enabled by financial innovations. QFC is increasingly looking at digital payments, wallet solutions, and smooth remittance channels that cannot only allow for a cashless society, but also cater to new demands for instant insurance, real time investments, digital access and KYC solutions.

Fintech is a catalyst for growth, especially in the GCC region. During this webinar, we will be interviewing experts in Fintech and exploring what opportunities lie ahead in Qatar.
