The Search, Global Tour: Nordic & Baltics
In this edition of The Search we head to the Nordic and Baltic States to discover why this region is home to so many unicorns. We take a close look at why this area stands out for its rapid adoption of non-cash payments, and how cultural factors have facilitated this rapid growth.
We’re delighted to welcome Douglas Greenig, CEO of Florin Court Capital to uncover insights into the importance of data with his session ‘The Role of Data in Financial Risk – An Investor's Perspective. With his extensive experience in portfolio management and trading, Douglas investigates why big data is transforming the financial industry, the opportunities it represents for financial management and why it’s helping investors really get to know their customers.
Plus, we join INSEAD for a tour of Baltic Fintechs, taking a look at some of the up and coming fintechs from the region and exploring the role of startup organisations in connecting the local startup ecosystems and showcasing these to the wider world.
