The Covid-19 crisis caused a sharp correction in equity markets, but as we adjust to the new reality, we can observe some clear winners. Areas such as cashless payments, e-commerce and online shopping – all of which require financial technology – are seeing accelerated growth. The crisis means the future is simply coming faster, and is likely to kickstart a wider impetus to digitalize all financial services.

In this webinar, portfolio manager Michiel van Voorst and client portfolio manager Carl Ghielen will provide an update on the Robeco Fintech strategy. They will discuss the effect of the coronavirus crisis on payments, exchanges and cybersecurity, and give some insight into the latest trends in the Fintech segment.

Our interactive live webinar format allows you to connect with the presenters, along with their presentations, and ask questions afterwards. We focus on Fintech with a full Q&A. So, don't miss your chance to get the inside story and expert view on how thematic investing is really playing out during a crisis!
