About This Show
Show Info: Pacific Exchanges is a new podcast from the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. The show features interviews with experts from the world of economics and finance to explore developing trends in the Asia-Pacific. The first season of Pacific Exchanges examines the development of financial technology—commonly known as “FinTech”—in Asia, assessing how technology impacts the financial system, affects access to finance, and changes the competitive landscape for banks. With experts like the Chief Fintech Officer of Singapore’s central bank, a senior officer at the Gates Foundation involved in technology-enhanced financial inclusion, and a Stanford scholar focused on FinTech’s potential for small business lending, we discuss what distinguishes financial technology in Asia. The views expressed are not necessarily those of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco or of the Federal Reserve System.
