Latest Developments in Fintech and Insurtech: The rocky path to financial automatization

Rapid technological advancement has disrupted the financial industry in recent years. Blockchain technology is revolutionizing the payments system and trade finance, and new machine learning tools is generating more insights from data analysis.
