Hong Kong ICT Awards 2016 (Best FinTech Award) is being held during October 2015 to April 2016 by the Hong Kong Institute of Bankers (HKIB). Dr. Toa Charm is invited by HKIB to be an assessor of the Best FinTech Award.
The Hong Kong ICT Awards aims at recognising and promoting outstanding information and communications technology (ICT) inventions and applications, thereby encouraging innovation and excellence among Hong Kong’s ICT talents and enterprises in their constant pursuit of creative and better solutions to meet business and social needs.
The Hong Kong ICT Awards was established in 2006 with the collaborative efforts of the industry, academia and the Government. Steered by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, and organised by Hong Kong ICT industry associations and professional bodies, the Awards aims at building a locally espoused and internationally acclaimed brand of ICT awards.
There are eight categories under the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2016, including the new Best FinTech Award. There will be one Grand Award in each category, and an “Award of the Year” will be selected from the eight Grand Awards by the Grand Judging Panel.
There are three streams as:
1) Best FinTech (Banking and Insurance) Award
2) Best FinTech (Capital Market) Award
3) Best FinTech (Emerging Solution) Award
