Gustavo Zilles is a Data Specialist Consultant with a background in Data Regulation and Governance. As somebody who’s worked with some of Latin America’s largest investment banks, he decided to gain an overview of the Fintech industry through CFTE’s Fintech 360 course.
CFTE: What motivated you to take the Fintech 360 course?
Gustavo: One of the biggest challenges today for Financial Institutions is to adapt for this “transition state between old finance and new finance”. That is creating a lot of new opportunities for people who want to help to identify, understand and solve all these kinds of problems. I have decided to take the Fintech 360 programme courses to better understand what is happening in the global market and this new kind of opportunities.
CFTE: What did you enjoy the most about the course? Any main points that stuck with you?
Gustavo: My favorite fields of studies during the course have been Payments, Open Finance and RegTech. I can visualise many work opportunities for me linking subjects of these 3 different areas. I have enjoyed the way the instructors conducted the course and the market expertise of all the lecturers who have been invited to speak on certain subjects. I really want to continue studying and taking all the specialisation courses of the platform in these areas as soon as possible!
CFTE: And finally, if you could describe yourself in 3 words or less, what would those be?
Gustavo: Disruptive creative leader.
