Financial technology (FinTech) has become a game-changing force within the financial industry, fundamentally transforming the delivery, consumption, and experience of financial services. The fusion of technology, data, and finance has ushered in a new era of innovation, presenting unparalleled opportunities for businesses, consumers, and society at large. The advent of innovative FinTech solutions has brought about enhanced customer experiences, streamlined financial processes, facilitated financial inclusion, and improved efficiency across various sectors. While the significance of these advancements has garnered substantial attention from researchers in recent years, there remain unexplored areas that warrant further investigation. Moreover, as financial regulatory bodies strive to safeguard the integrity of financial markets and establish coherent frameworks for FinTech, they must strike a balance between implementing rigorous regulatory measures and fostering an environment conducive to financial technology innovation. Hence, this track serves as a dedicated platform for researchers to delve into the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities within the realm of financial technology and innovation, including digital banking, online lending, cryptocurrency, RegTech, InsurTech, and wealth management innovations.
