Mr. Nelson CHOW, Chief Fintech Officer, Fintech Facilitation Office, Hong Kong Monetary Authority
In the post-pandemic era, Fintech is a key growth engine for the financial industry. In June 2021, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) announced “Fintech 2025”, its new strategy for driving fintech development of Hong Kong. The strategy aims to encourage the financial sector to adopt technology comprehensively by 2025, as well as to promote the provision of fair and efficient financial services for the benefit of Hong Kong citizens and the economy. In this webinar, Mr. Nelson Chow will start by sharing some key focus areas put forward in this strategy. Then, Prof. Chun Kwong Chan will have a fire-side chat with him to further explore the commonly interested areas, such as Commercial Data Interchange (CDI), Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) and FinTech Supervisory Sandbox 3.0.
Mr Nelson CHOW has been appointed to the present position from 1 September 2016 with responsibilities for facilitating the healthy development of the fintech ecosystem in Hong Kong and promoting Hong Kong as a fintech hub in Asia. He joined the HKMA in 2004 and was responsible for the supervision of banks’ technology risk management and business continuity planning as well as the formulation of related policies and guidelines. He was the Deputy Chief Representative of the New York Office in 2010. After returning to Hong Kong in 2013, he took up responsibilities to supervise banks’ operational risk management and perform macro-prudential data analysis.
