Senior executives from Accenture's partners are just as excited at the prospect of working with some of the region's brightest minds. "China Construction Bank (Asia) is excited to help lead the way in fintech innovation," said Head of IT for CCB (Asia), Arthur Wong. "We recognise that innovation is the way forward for the industry and it plays a key part in the growth journey of the bank, which is committed to keep on enhancing customer experience and bringing added value to our client."
"We have a significant technology footprint in Asia and a long history of working with our technology bankers in support of [US] West Coast start-ups," said Morgan Stanley's Asia CIO Jim McGill. "It is very exciting that we now bring some of those practices into Hong Kong."
"Innovation is a core value of Bank of China (Hong Kong) and we take great pleasure to be part of this meaningful program that shares the same belief," said BoC HK's COO Alex Lee. "The FinTech program provides an effective platform for financial technology innovators to better understand our needs, which helps drive banking innovation to transform the customer experience. Financial services companies are the largest buyers of technology-enabled solutions and we are delighted to be at the forefront of innovation."
"As Asia continues to emerge as a source of business creativity and innovation, we're excited to have an opportunity to work with some of the region's newest entrepreneurs and businesses and help them find their own path to success," said AP technology head for JP Morgan's corporate and investment bank, Alan Goldstein.
