Personal finance insight / Payrise / kidtrepreneurs

One of the hot topics in Hong Kong at the moment when it comes to finance is FinTech. On this Saturday's Money Talk Xtra, presenter Peter Lewis looks at one aspect of Financial Technology that’s changing the way we pay for goods and services. The digital wallet. Jimmy Lam meets a Money Talk Xtra listener who wants to ask her boss for a pay rise and needs some advice on the best way to go about it. Finally, we’re going to continue our series of interviews with entrepreneurs. This week’s there’s a twist because Peter meets not one but three budding entrepreneurs who were finalists in a recent elevator pitch competition organised by Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks. And they’re all aged between 8 and 12 years old.

We welcome any questions, comments or suggestions from you; moneytalk@rthk.hk is the email address. Or you can post on our Facebook page – Money Talk Xtra on RTHK Radio 3.
