We have witnessed major industry reforms due to the fourth industrial revolution which is characterized by technological innovations like robotics, AI (Artificial Intelligence), nanotechnology, IOT (Internet of Things), Blockchain, Big data, etc.. These technological innovations open up new opportunities by offering smart and efficient solutions for many businesses. Coupled with globalization, technological innovations enable firms expand their business beyond national borders. The impacts are also spreading to other sectors once considered as conservative like finance and insurance. New developments called FinTech and InsurTech have big impacts on financial industries. While financial consumers have more choice and convenience at a lower cost, it is becoming increasingly difficult to value the risk of complex financial products or services. As a result, regulators in financial industry are facing new challenges in the age of globalization and rapid technological advances.
