Most investment discussion on technology rightly focuses on supporting investment in technology. However, reversing perspectives we see that technology can support investment. The role of technology in supporting trade is widely recognised – but technology’s role in facilitating investment is less examined. As investments follow broader business trends for speed and agility, both investors and governments need to review their InvestTech toolbox.

  • What is the role of technology in providing investment intelligence, matchmaking and process automation?
  • Where can investors and governments cooperate to catalyse the use of technology in the investment value chain?
