One of the most acclaimed Fintech applications of this time is the automated credit offered to millions of entrepreneurs on e-commerce platforms. How can we understand and evaluate Fintech as one of the most important financial innovations in the post-crisis era? What are the implications for the traditional banking sector and credit market?

In this seminar we brought together academics and practitioners that discussed these issues.
