Against a backdrop of rapid technological change, Web 3.0 is becoming a key focus for FinTech organisations, bringing new opportunities to the financial services sector. The next generation of Internet infrastructure, Web 3.0 will be built using decentralised technologies – such as blockchain, peer-to-peer networks and other technologies that increase digital efficiency by enabling access to information without the need for centralised servers.
In order to realise the full potential of the digital economy, organisations will have to find and retain talent, while financial professionals will need to learn the skills necessary to meet the demands of a more technologically intensive job market. Students and young professionals are in a strong position to prepare for new demands from the employers in the financial services sector.
