    Course Description

    This course, presented by the Monetary and Capital Markets Department, focuses on e-money, mobile payment system developments, preconditions, business model, risks, prudential regulations, and contingency planning. The course is designed to be interactive by using a combination of lectures, case studies/simulations, and panel discussions. The self-assessment exercises are based on targeted procedures and include use cases, elements, business models, risks, and regulations. Participants, after gaining a basic understanding of the e-money and mobile payments, apply them to a hypothetical country to clarify/formulate an overall fintech payment strategy and action plan. After the hands-on self-assessment experience, results are discussed through group presentations and de-briefings.
