What is Fintech?

Global financial services are about to be majorly disrupted by a concept known as Financial Technology or in short known as “Fintech”. As our world moves towards digital innovation it was only a matter of time that this innovation would touch the financial industry. As such, since 2008 major financial disruption started to appear in the form of world’s first digital currency “Bitcoin”. Since, various innovations started across the financial world in the form of mobile payments, automated risk management, crowdfunding etc. As of January 2016, about $7 billion were invested globally in Fintech companies. Adding to that, about $2.6 billion were raised by Fintech companies based in Asia. The key to Fintech market and success matters in three things:

a. Market size

b. Technology enablement

c. Regulation flexibility
