Banking Technology March 2020 issue out now
Keep calm and carry on
The latest edition of our flagship magazine – Banking Technology – is out now, packed with news, analysis and insights, case studies, research and expert commentary.
A note from our editor, Sharon Kimathi:
I’ve been introducing new items in the editor’s note for the past two editions of Banking Technology magazine, and this month is no different!
Since we’re heading into spring, we decided to give our magazine a spring clean with a fresh look. Within it, you’ll find a new ‘fintech feeds’ section featuring the industry’s funny and witty tweets, my top five industry top picks and a tongue-in-cheek gossip column from our resident ‘Gossip Girl’.
This month’s theme, ‘the rise of China’, comes at such a prescient time for the nation as it battles with the unfortunate effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19). We highlight how people in the country and the financial services industry are coping with the crisis.
Emily Fowler unpacks the initiatives of fintech giants such as Tencent, Baidu and Ant Financial, who are digging deep to help people affected by the outbreak. The companies have been offering financial support to merchants being treated in hospitals for the virus, hospitals in need of medical supplies and scientists working on a vaccine.
But its effects on the local fintech market aren’t all negative, as technology is being leveraged there to help during the outbreak.
It wouldn’t be fair to just discuss China’s financial developments in the context of the virus as there are plenty of topics to highlight. Marcus Hughes, director of business development at Bottomline Technologies also explores how China has been in the comfortable position of having already implemented the ISO 20022 format in most of its mission-critical payment systems.
There’s also plenty more analysis to sink your teeth into, so I won’t keep you any longer – download the free magazine already!
