Financial disruption has become a phenomenon in China with the growth of for instance online loaning platforms such as Ant Financial which is launched by the e-commerce giant Alibaba in 2015. Popular among young people, these services encourage their users to shop before pay online, bringing the credit system to e-commerce platforms. How do these disruptive services operate? What benefits and risks they could have to (European and Australian) people living in China? How could the Financial disruption trend affect them?

This event aims to provide a general explanation to European and Australian individuals and businesses about the online credit service, including its operation and risks, and future development. Its focus is on the trend of financial disruption instead of specific platforms, helping enlighten European and Australian businesses who have yet to utilise these disruptive services about the risks and opportunities they bring.

To discuss all of these questions before our selected audience, we have invited a high-level and very knowledgeable panel:

  • Professor Liu Jing: Professor of Accounting and Finance, Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB)
  • Mr. Johan de Wit: Vice President & Head of Retail, Bank of Beijing
  • Mr. Greg Van den Bergh: Founder/CEO of Bankorus

Professor Liu Jing will open the event with a brief presentation of the results of his recent survey on investor sentiment in China, and will subsequently join the panel with our selected panelists to discuss financial disruptions in China.

This event is brought to you with the support of: CKGSB, AustCham, EU SME Centre, and BritCham.
