My name is Fearghus Barkley and I am a recent MSc graduate from Queen Mary, University of London. Over the course of my studies I have worked for The FinTech50 as a Research Analyst, covering Europe’s and more recently Asia’s FinTech sector. My research on Asian FinTech has driven my intrigue towards the possibilities of technology for boosting Financial Inclusion, a topic that has consistently cropped up in my studies.

In January 2017 I will be travelling around Asia, and I will be blogging about the potential of FinTech in serving the underbanked by researching and speaking to FinTech companies and stakeholders.
