Conference Theme:  The Future of Finance in the Digital Age

The forthcoming 26th Malaysian Finance Association International Conference (MFAIC 2024) and inaugural 1st International Conference of Global Business and Digital Economy (ICGLOBDE 2024) strive to facilitate thoughtful, interdisciplinary discussions surrounding the monumental digital transformation reshaping finance. With the theme “The Future of Finance in the Digital Age,” the conferences actively welcome leading scholars across academic fields, industry experts, and policymakers to chart an informed, ethical path forward.

Sessions synthesize diverse insights on how emerging technologies can enhance financial access, efficiency, and stability while managing risks. All participants should feel encouraged to share findings, identify issues warranting further inspection, and forge networks to tackle forthcoming challenges at the intersection of technology, finance, business, and policy domestically and globally.

Sub-themes highlight how innovations in artificial intelligence, digital finance, financial technology, blockchain, predictive analytics, and more are widening financial inclusion worldwide and transforming investment markets. Related sessions also address resultant shifts in corporate finance, governance, accounting, financial economics, Islamic finance, and education.

With rapidly expanding research on sustainable finance, additional sub-themes and sessions specifically examine environmental, social, and governance (ESG) matters alongside economic growth. Mirroring digital advancements, further topics include how technologies shape global business models, cross-border services, intangible assets, data utilization, and maintaining competitiveness.

By gathering diversity amongst academics, practitioners, and policymakers, these conferences offer an invaluable forum for collegially debating the multifaceted implications of financial innovation. Scholars across all disciplines are highly encouraged to participate by submitting research and synthesizing perspectives during the conferences to chart an informed path forward.

We strongly believe that the immense knowledge and experience contemporary pioneers in finance, business, technology, policy, and academia can bring to these discussions is key to shaping an ethical digital future for the finance industry, domestically and globally. We very much look forward to welcoming this collective expertise and benefiting from these opportune, multidisciplinary exchanges of ideas.
