Fintech and Risk

The booming of the fintech sector has led to rapid changes to the financial industry and markets. Perhaps, the most prominent example of this boom is the growth of the cryptocurrency market.  However, what accompanies this rapid expansion is an excessive level of unknowns. For instance,many have observed the price hikes of Bitcoins to a landmark high near $65,000 on April 13, 2021 and its subsequent fall to $55,000 within the same couple of days, which exemplifies the volatility in the Bitcoin market. What this has sparked is the need for a better understanding of the financial innovations embedded in the cryptocurrency and fintech markets, especially in terms of risk. Similarly, we have seen other emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, quantum computing, smart contracts, crowd funding and the like gaining numerous applications in finance. The growth and expansion of these technologies in the financial sector will inevitably have significant implications in the way we understand and characterize future financial risks. We, therefore, wish to dedicate a special issue to address issues related to fintech and its associated risks.

Researchers in this area are welcome to contribute to a special issue of The European Journal of Finance titled “Fintech and Risk”. Contributions are invited covering a range of topics related to Fintech and Risk, in particular applied work specializing in cryptocurrency, fraud detection, hedging, quantum finance and AI in finance and risk management. The guest editors for the special issue will be Steve Yang (Stevens Institute of Technology, USA), Arman Eshraghi (Cardiff, UK) and Jing Chen (Cardiff, UK). All papers will be double blind refereed in the usual way.
