Financial Innovation under COVID-19: Lessons Learned & Solutions

The world is currently experiencing the devastating effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. On current evidence of disruptions, the pandemic is likely to be worse than the Spanish flu in 1914-1918. Most forecasters now expect world GDP to shrink in 2020, with some predicting a contraction of as much as 4%—twice the decline experienced due to the global financial crisis of 2007-09. The impact of COVID-19 is vast and varied, complex and evolving. The social disruptions are equally devastating. The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented scenario for individuals, households, businesses, and institutions globally. Some partial solutions at play are new financial instruments and technology.

This special issue is therefore aimed at exploring more the role of technology and innovation in providing solutions to challenges posed by COVID-19. The theme of this SI is “Financial Innovation under COVID-19: Lessons Learned & Solutions”. All types of papers that address this challenge and develop/design innovative solutions for businesses and economies are welcomed. In this regard, topical areas of interest include, but are not limited to: the social and economic impacts of COVID-19 and real-world impacts surrounding applications and management of blockchain, artificial intelligence, big data, Internet-of-Things, and other advanced computing, such as 5G adoption in banking and other finance services.

All papers should be submitted to Emerging Markets Finance and Trade at the following link https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/emft.
