Technology has been introducing and enabling new paradigms in different industries. In the financial sector, the rapid growth of technology-based financial firms (e.g., Fintech and InsurTech) has put incumbent financial institutions (e.g., banking, insurance and credit institutions) under pressure to transform their business strategies and operations to cope with these changes. The main emphasis of this Special Issue is on The Financial Industry 4.0 in order to provide insightful understanding about the benefits as well as the challenges that financial institutions are facing. The potential areas to be addressed will include, but are not limited to, the following issues:
- The development and performance of technology-based financial firms such as FinTech, InsurTech, RegTech, WealthTech and RiskTech.
- Technological development and implementation at incumbent financial institutions and their impacts.
- The relationship between technology-based financial firms and incumbent players.
