Session Information

James is responsible for the strategy and operation of EY's financial technology (“FinTech”) capability across Asia-Pacific. Based in Hong Kong, he leads a fully-dedicated regionally-focused team tasked with advising clients on matters relating to new financial technologies, processes, and business models. James is also responsible for identifying and supporting high-growth-potential fintech startups – while simultaneously working to expand the firm’s relationships with regulators, venture capital, and other ecosystem participants.

Prior to joining EY, James helped build and scale a venture-backed “alternative finance” platform provider enabling banks to profitably offer short-term unsecured loans to under-served small businesses; first as head of product management, then as head of strategy & corporate development. Prior to that, he worked in product strategy and delivery for a bootstrapped ecommerce payment gateway which combined direct-to-market customer acquisition with white-labelled full-service delivery for partner banks; the business was subsequently acquired.

James is an active participant in the wider fintech ecosystem across Asia-Pacific: as start-up mentor, seed investor, and community builder. He sits on various regulatory and government panels, including the Fintech Advisory Group of the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) and the Fintech Working Group of the Financial Services Development Council (FSDC).
