Call for exclusive book chapters: “FinTech Research and Applications: Challenges and Opportunities”[Transformations in Banking, Finance and Regulation series], to be published by World Scientific Publishing, July/August 2022.

Editors: Daisy Chou, RMIT University, School of Economics, Finance and Marketing, Australia; Conall O’Sullivan, University College Dublin, UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School, Ireland;Vassilios G.

Book description: The environment for international financial services has become extremely competitive and the financial services sector is more technology intensive than it has ever been. The recent global financial crisis along with the financial implications of the Covid-19 pandemic have revealed that the business models and regulatory frameworks in place in different countries are incomplete and insufficient to prevent further build ups of vulnerabilities in the financial services sector that can generate systemic risk in the financial system. Moreover, competition from non-bank financial intermediation and technology firms has forced banks and financial services firms to concentrate further on new business opportunities, new business models and modernised market practices that are based on digital transformation. Financial Technology (FinTech) is a rapidly growing industry that uses technology to improve financial services, serving both consumers and businesses alike but alongside these opportunities, regulatory challenges lie ahead. FinTech has broad applications in areas such as mobile banking, insurance, fraud detection, cryptocurrencies, and financial markets forecasting. FinTech’s main themes, including big data, blockchain, robotics, and artificial intelligence (including machine learning) have reshaped the financial services industry in recent years and have offered innovative new products and business solutions. FinTech presents both opportunities and challenges for countries across the globe and is widely regarded as a key contributor to the development of the international financial services industry. It offers great opportunities for finance researchers to conduct meaningful, multidisciplinary cutting-edge research that lies at the intersection of finance and technology. This book aims to provide insights on the latest developments in the area of FinTech. It is a collection of scientific articles covering all primary areas of finance. The Editors seek theoretical, empirical, and policy papers centred around (though not limited to) the following key themes:• Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning• Cryptocurrencies• Initial Coin Offerings (ICO)• Blockchain applications• Banking and payments• Peer-to-peer lending• Big data• High-frequency trading and market liquidity• Risk management• Asset price prediction models• Volatility modelling• Portfolio management• Digitalization in financial services• Financial fraud detection• Financial regulation in the new era of FinTech. The intended readership of the book spans both academic audiences and industry professionals working in the financial services sector who use (or intend to use) FinTech applications to improve their business processes. Policymakers, regulators, and investors will also be provided with new results and future perspectives on the impact of FinTech on financial markets, firm behaviors, and investment strategies.
