The idea being to improve the competitive advantage of financial institutions.

The programme will run from 16th September 16th to 3rd November, 2015. Applications are now open.

“For the last two consecutive years, I have mentored finalist teams on the 3D FinTech Challenge and witnessed the positive outcomes achieved during the program”

Vice President, Financial and Business Services Industry, of Dassault Systèmes Guillaume Dufour said: “Since the 2008 global financial crisis, the financial services industry has witnessed significant customer dissatisfaction due to regulatory burdens and complexities, and this is forcing the industry to adapt and evolve.

“Dassault Systèmes has 30 years of technology know-how and experience in helping companies in regulated industries embrace disruptive innovation and change. The 3D FinTech Challenge enables us to collaborate with the financial industry, share our heritage and drive customer centric innovations that help institutions thrive in the face of industry transformation.”
