Guest Editor Chris Skinner, Living in a leapfrog world.

When the Fintech Times guys asked me to be guest editor of the spring edition of The Fintech Times, I felt quite honoured. I’m not a journalist, editor or media guy, although many people view me that way. I’m actually a commentator, as I call it. An opinion person. Writing a blog is not the same as running a magazine or newspaper, but this is the job that I was asked to do and I’ve got stuck in.

I’ve been all over Asia, Africa, the world and truly believe we are seeing a world of change driven by leapfrog economies coming from the Southern hemisphere and Asia. You’ll find that is the theme of my contribution to this issue, and the theme overall: we are living in a leapfrog world.

We have a number of great contributions from friends in my network. Brandon Chung of 11:FS, Henry Ma, the chief information officer of WeBank, Dr. Jidong Chen, who leads all aspects of Ant Financial‘s biometric identification technology business.
