Technology disruption has been impacting and reshaping industries around the world. Our own research estimates that technological disruption could impact as much as 47% of global public companies by market cap in the next ten years. An estimated 1.4 billion jobs will be displaced by artificial intelligence in the next decade, changing economies and societies in fundamental ways.
Mr. Jan Metzger, Managing Director, Investment Banking Global Co-Head of Technology and Head of Asia Pacific TMT, Citigroup, will discuss examples of industries being displaced by technology such as New Retail and FinTech, as well as some of the trends to come, and how companies can defend themselves against the digital disruption. He will also discuss how capital markets around the globe have contributed to the technology disruption by funding some of the most successful companies. Mr. Metzger will provide insights into how institutional and private investors look for and evaluate these new Tech Titans.
