Fintech in the UK and China

The Centre for Business Research (CBR) members Simon Deakin, Ding Chen, Boya Wang and Frank Stephen travelled to China in April 2017 to take part in a conference on Internet-based finance, or ‘Fintech’.

The conference took place in Hangzhou, the city in Zhejiang province which is home to several major Chinese internet companies including Ali Baba. Fintech is developing rapidly in both the UK and China, and the conference heard presentations from a number of practitioners and regulators based in China and from academic experts from both countries.

CBR is collaborating on this work with colleagues from Hunan and Renmin Universities and the research is jointly funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and the National Science Foundation of China.
