Special Issue in FinTech: Fintech and Sustainable Finance
FinTech (Financial Technology) means “technology-enabled financial innovation”. Examples of FinTech innovations are peer to peer lending, robot advisory, and blockchain innovative and crypto payments. While FinTech innovations are competitive and bring higher financial inclusion, along with improved user experience, they also increase risks and, particularly, financial risks (credit, market, systemic, cyber, and operational risks).
There is a strong need to improve the competitiveness of FinTech innovations, creating a common regulatory approach across all countries that can make FinTech innovation sustainable. This can help to encourage innovations in the financial industry, in the application of big data, artificial intelligence, and blockchain technologies, while authorities and researchers assess their risks.
I believe that FinTech innovations themselves generate the data which can be leveraged to build appropriate FinTech risk management models. FinTech innovations generate “alternative” data: peer-to-peer financial and social transactions among the users. This source of data can be usefully analyzed, by means of network models. to complement and/or substitute banking and financial data employed in traditional risk management models, leading to more explainable results and more accurate predictions, eventually leading to more trust in FinTech innovations.
This Special Issue aims to collect original papers that contribute to the development of new fintech risk management models, based on the modeling of alternative data by means of network models.
This issue is a continuation of the previous Special Issue “Financial Networks in Fintech Risk Management”.
