What is Fintech
FinTech is the technology-enabled innovation in financial services, which enables the creation of new business models, applications, processes and products with an associated material effect on financial markets and institutions and the provision of financial services.
Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Chatbots, 5G and more are disrupting the banking sector, with multiple applications further exploited and openly developed through API portals and open banking initiatives.
