AI for CROs

AI for CROs
The Chief Revenue Officers or commonly known as CRO’s will play an important role on establishing revenue streams for the organization. Relatively, thirty-five percent of chief revenue officers (CROs) will establish a generative AI operations team in their go-to market (GTM) organization by 2025, according to Gartner group.  Faster, deeper insight generated by Artificial Intelligence will accelerate the speed at which Go-To-Market teams produce buyer content and adapt to market forces, ultimately improving the reliability of sales’ decision making and improving end-to-end revenue outcomes. Presently, sellers spend 52% of their time on creating and delivering value messaging across the sales process, according to Gartner’s research study of 1,204 sellers in May 2023. Generative value messaging, or the ability to harness the power of generative AI for buyer-centric messaging and content, will significantly reduce the time it takes sellers to produce and disseminate quality content.  In view of these, we've invited once again, Mr. Sajid Bokhari, the Chief Executive Officer of Geniepay, a very powerful B2B platform from Sydney, Australia as he explains to us the value proposition of the AI tools to the CRO's as well as to the entire business organization and its significant relevance to our digital economy. https://geniepay.io Email: sajid.bokhari@geniepay.io Linkedin: Sajid Bokhari --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/edgar-angeles/message
Digital Financial Ecosystems

Digital Financial Ecosystems
The next few years could be a make-or-break period for some banks and financial institutions. They will join the digital financial ecosystem movement—or be consumed by it. These platform-based ecosystems offer products and services that are created and distributed in partnership with others. And they confer powerful advantages, allowing organizations to enter new markets, create new services, and acquire new customers faster and more affordably than with traditional product development and go-to-market models. By 2030, digital ecosystems could account for a significant share of the banking revenue pool according to the research study conducted by the Boston Consulting Group recently. The Digital Ecosystems are the undeniable next step in digital disruption for the financial services sector. The hyper-connectivity that digital tools and channels enable has blurred traditional boundaries between brick-and-mortar and web environments and between the four walls of an enterprise and the wider value chain. In view of these, we've invited Mr. Arvie de Vera, Co-Founder and Board Trustee of the Fintech Philippines Association and former Chief Executive Officer of UnionDigital Bank as he walks us through the recent developments of the FinTech community in the Philippines as well as its significant relevance to our digital economy.

Matrix of Innovation

Matrix of Innovation
The economic volatility and uncertainty, higher cost of funding, and the need to diversify supply chains are particular concerns for businesses operating in the Asia Pacific region. But what sets the region apart is the access to enormous technology talent pools that are adept at resolving problems through the use of artificial intelligence, process automation, and data analysis among others. One result of this is the region’s leadership in adopting new real-time payments methods, plus API and cloud-based payments technologies, which has led to the emergence of popular digital wallets and sophisticated digital banking providers. These in turn are transforming e-commerce and leading the swift rise of new business approaches, such as direct-to-consumer, usage-based pricing, and subscription models. Meanwhile, online platforms that once catered to a single niche are expanding through partnerships with firms in other sectors, giving rise to multi-industry, region-wide ecosystems. This has made the region a cradle of innovation when it comes to financial technology, and a must-follow space for those interested in where digital adoption go next. In view of these, we've invited Mr. Umang Moondra, Chief Executive Officer of APIX platform as he walks us through the significant relevance of innovation into our digital economy. https://apixplatform.com https://www.synfindo.com --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/edgar-angeles/message
Breaking Through Disruption

Breaking Through Disruption
Being relevant – to the market and to consumers – is paramount for businesses. In today’s rapidly evolving marketplace, companies and individuals alike must keep up with new digital trends if they are to continue meeting consumer expectations. Traditional business models are being pushed to the wayside, and many organizations are struggling to keep pace or, worse yet, resisting change altogether. How a company responds to these changes and trends will determine its ability to survive or thrive. Even if it has embraced digital transformation, knowing what changes to make, when to make them, and how to manage updated business processes and outcomes is a significant challenge. For instance, Amazon, Uber and Netflix are classic examples of companies that combine these elements and embody the very face of digital disruption. Both platforms capitalize on new technologies and changing consumer habits, and both have significantly impacted traditional businesses and systems in their respective industries. Their disruptive presence – and rapid rise – forced established and entrenched companies to rethink their tried-and-true models. In view of these, we've invited once again Mr. Ian Rae, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Wyzepay from United Kingdom as he explains to us the exceptional features of the platform presently disrupting the consumer and B2B payment sector in London as well as its significant relevance to our digital economy. https://www.wyzepay.com/ --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/edgar-angeles/message

FX on AI
Foreign exchange trading, also known as FX or forex trading, is one of the world’s largest and most influential markets regarding trading volume, value, and liquidity. As new technologies emerge, so have forex methods and strategies. With the advent of artificial intelligence and machine learning in science, forex traders and experts have learned to adopt this new technology to improve trading and make their strategies more efficient. However, this field also comes with its own set of challenges and risks. Currency values are constantly fluctuating, and many traders resort to using leverage or executing larger trades to make money. While this method can bring enormous gains, it can also result in significant losses. For this reason, many traders have turned to AI to help them manage the risks involved in forex trading. Whether you’re an independent trader or are part of an FX affiliate programs, trading bots have become exceedingly popular. These bots aid in automating trades based on specific parameters and trading preferences. Despite the more recent mainstream boom of AI technology, technological and automation tools are not new in the forex industry. Many traders and brokers have already incorporated some form of AI into their strategies. In view of these, we've invited, Mr. Melvin Lim, the Founder and Managing Director of Laze Trader Pte. Ltd., a very promising Singapore FinTech company as he walk us through the relevance of artificial intelligence trading on FX market and its value proposition to our digital economy.

Emerging Digital Finance

Emerging Digital Finance
According to the survey from McKinsey, adoption of digital banking in emerging markets has caught up with that in developed markets. Between 2017 and 2021, the share of consumers in Asia–Pacific emerging markets actively using digital banking increased sharply, rising 33 percentage points from 54 percent in 2017 to 88 percent in 2021. The level of digital adoption among consumers in developed Asia–Pacific markets has remained stable at approximately 90 percent. The shift to digital banking has happened quickly and was likely accelerated by existing trends—such as increasing use of digital channels for diverse transactions, including banking, and broader use of teleconferencing/video calls in place of face-to-face meetings—that have intensified during the COVID-19 pandemic. Survey results suggest that the high levels of digital adoption are likely to hold as the pandemic subsides. As Asia-Pacific consumers turn increasingly to digital channels to manage all aspects of their finances, incumbent banks must weigh carefully the strategic questions above and chart their course forward. To thrive in this increasingly dynamic market, each bank will need to build (or acquire) the technology, talent, and ways of working that will enable it to scale distinctive and relevant innovations quickly and at low cost. As such, we've invited Gloria Soo, Founding Partner of Almond Tech Pte. Ltd. based in Singapore as she walk us through the significant relevance of Financial Technology solutions to our digital economy. https://www.almond-tech.com/ --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/edgar-angeles/message

AlgoTrading
Algorithmic trading, also known as automated trading or AlgoTrading, refers to the use of computer programs and advanced mathematical models to execute trades in financial markets. These algorithms are designed to analyze vast amounts of data, identify patterns, and make trading decisions based on predefined rules. Algorithmic trading has gained popularity in recent years due to its ability to execute trades at high speed and with precision. Algorithmic trading offers several advantages over traditional manual trading. Firstly, it eliminates the influence of human emotions and biases, ensuring objective decision-making. Additionally, AlgoTrading enables trades to be executed at lightning-fast speeds, capitalizing on even the smallest market inefficiencies. Moreover, algorithmic trading allows for backtesting and optimization, enabling traders to refine their strategies based on historical data. These benefits have made algorithmic trading a preferred choice for both individual traders and institutional investors. In view of these, we've invited a seasoned private independent global market trader “Jose Aranaz” as he shares with us his insightful views on algorithmic trading and its value proposition to our digital economy.
