Vol. 1 No. 1 (2023): FinTech and Artificial Intelligence in Finance

FinTech and AI in Finance (FinTAF) conference was hosted by the Department of Finance Accounting and Business systems (FABS) which is part of the Business Technology and Engineering Faculty at Sheffield Hallam University. For more information about the Department of Finance , Accounting and Business systems please visit the department's website at: https://www.shu.ac.uk/about-us/academic-departments/finance-accounting-and-business-systems

The aim of the conference is to explore current developments within the FinTech industry and assess the key issues faced. The role played by artificial intelligence within FinTech development and its effect on key stakeholders i.e. investors decisions, financial services and global markets. We are also keen to explore empirically and theoretically the legal and regulatory implications of the FinTech industry and how it interfaces with the banking industry, asset servicing, capital markets and investment management (e.g. wealth management etc.).
