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.
