Karsten Wenzlaff, PhD student in the team of Prof Dr. Sebastian Späth, belongs to a research team of the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF) at Cambridge Judge Business School, University of Cambridge. CCAF is partnering with the World Bank Group and the World Economic Forum to launch a Global COVID-19 FinTech Market Rapid Assessment Survey. The empirical data collected will be used to understand COVID-19’s impact on the FinTech markets and how the global FinTech industry has responded, as well as some of the immediate regulatory and policy implications.
Link to the survey:
The aim of this online survey is to rapidly assess the performance of the global FinTech market and ascertain what kind of regulatory and policy responses might be most appropriate across different FinTech market segments and geographical markets. The survey is directed at firms in FinTech and Digital Financial Services (DFS) markets and will run from 15 June through to 30 July 2020.
Working with more than 150 global FinTech associations and ecosystem partners, the rapid assessment survey aims to reach 15,000+ FinTech firms in over 190 jurisdictions. For the purpose of this study, FinTech is defined broadly, encompassing advances in technology and changes in business models that have the potential to transform the provision of financial services through the development of innovative instruments, channels and systems. The joint rapid assessment survey targets 11 key FinTech industry verticals including digital lending, digital capital raising, digital payments, digital savings, InsurTech, WealthTech, digital custody, cryptoasset and consensus services, digital banks and market provisioning, across over 100 sub-verticals. Based on the findings, the CCAF, the World Bank and the World Economic Forum will jointly publish the Global COVID-19 FinTech Market Rapid Assessment Report within Q3 this year.
