Virtual banking has been regarded as one of the key milestones of financial innovation in Hong Kong. Now that all eight virtual banks have officially launched, this is probably the right time to start studying the new banking market trends in Hong Kong. In this online session, the speakers will compare these new joiners from various perspectives – products, services, and the functional quality of their mobile applications, etc., based on the snapshot taken in the first quarter of 2021. They will also share their insights on the development of virtual banking in Hong Kong.

• Background and comparison of Hong Kong virtual banks
• Panel discussion – The future landscape of Hong Kong virtual banks
