Calling all Digital Jedi,
You've heard of "robo-cops" and "robo-cars", but are you prepared for "robo-advisors"?
For our 95th social mixer, we've invited Mathias Helleu, Chairman and Co-Founder of 8 Securities (https://www.8securities.com/en/index.html), an online brokerage firm with an innovative approach to investing online and via your smart phone.
They have just launched a new platform, called "8 Now! (https://www.8securities.com/wealth/en/wealth.php)", an automated investment portfolio or "robo advisor".
We'll be talking about fintech (financial technology) startups in Hong Kong, algorithmic trading, responsive design, the role of social in growing a business and the future of banks.
SPECIAL OFFER: For any member of Web Wednesday who signs up for their new service, 8 Securities will deposit deposit HKD888 in their 8 Now! account. (Just mention "Web Wednesday" on your sign up form. Regulations require sign up in person).
What to do with all those profits? Spend them on a good cause!
We've also invited a member of the Child Welfare Scheme, who've been helping families in Nepal over the last 17 years, to tell us how we can help. For starters, we will be donating 10% of the entrance fees for this event to their charity. Of course, you can also make your own donations via the CWSHK website (http://www.cwshk.org/Donate.aspx).
Spread the word and see you on Wednesday evening, from 6:30pm - 9:30pm at Orange Peel.
