[FinTechathon: Hacking the Wealth Management Industry] By the end of this decade, millennials (approximately aged 15-29 now) will represent the largest ‘adult’ group, and nearly two thirds of the world’s millennials are in Asia. They are less financially savvy, more sceptical of financial advisors and consume ‘digitally’. This poses a challenge to banks and traditional financial advisors to adapt to this new customer profile. Hackathon challenges:
  • How to improve user acquisition and retention?
  • How to predictively offer customised wealth propositions?
  • How to encourage millennials to save and grow their wealth?
