“A significant amount of fintech innovation can best be understood as the automation of traditional finance“
In his talk Brett Scott will present his latest paper called “Hardcoding ethics into fintech” (awarded a “Ethics & Trust in Finance Global Prize”). The paper describes finance as a realm of monetary contracts and reflects on the ethical dimensions of existing retail finance. Brett argues that a digital format might impact those existing ethics and he suggests discreet research programmes to understand the ethics of fintech.
