Technology has had a transformative impact on our everyday lives, reshaping business as we know it. Yet the legal or regulatory industries have not fundamentally changed - at least not yet. This is about to change. The rise of LawTech and RegTech will not only transform centuries old professions, but may enable us to completely rethink and redesign the very basic concepts of trust, contracts and access to justice. Henri Arslanian is the PwC FinTech & RegTech Leader for China/Hong Kong and U.S. Liaison. He is also an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Hong Kong where he teaches graduate courses on Entrepreneurship in Finance as well as the first FinTech university course in Asia.
Henri is a TEDx speaker with his last talk being the most watched FinTech video on YouTube. He is also a published author and is currently working on his next book to come out in early 2018. He also sits on the board of the FinTech Association of Hong Kong and the board of the International RegTech Association. He holds a Masters in Chinese Law from Tsinghua University; a joint Global Executive MBA from Columbia Business School, London Business School, and Hong Kong University; a Masters in Transnational Law from the University of Sherbrooke; and a Bachelor of Law from the University of Montreal (Dean’s List of Excellence). This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
