FinTech - The Hidden Market

FinTech Overview - The Hidden Market

The FinTech industry has been booming for a number of years. FinTech combines Technology and Finance in order to make markets more efficient and often disrupt more traditional markets. 

Banking 

A commonly known area of FinTech is Banking. The rise of Neobanks, banks without physical branches have been incredibly popular over recent years. Regulation in open banking has enabled and facilitated some of these developments. There have been a plethora of apps and investments in tech in order to transform personal finance. These Neobanks have encouraged the traditional banks to invest in digital services too and for some of these banks to set up their own microbrands. 

Cryptocurrency & Blockchain 

Cryptocurrency & Blockchain are new technologies that in recent years have added new areas and forms of financial services: offering new financial instruments that are not governed by governments or traditional structures. 

Investment & Savings

Consumer investment and savings apps have exploded in recent years. Technology has brought down traditional barriers to investing and reduce the cost too. 

Machine Learning & Trading

Machine learning is the process of using the power of computing to automating the data analysis and model building to predict or help inform financial trading and investment decisions. Artificial intelligence (AI) allows a user to run massive amounts of data through algorithms in order to identify potential risks and problems. 

Payments 

Money moves and has down since time began. With the rise of modern technology, money is able to be transferred quicker than ever before. 

Lending 

FinTech has radically changed the credit market by streamlining the credit application process. Now it is possible to apply to the form of credit required from a number of devices across apps or web based applications. Risk modelling has improved and as such it has enabled the credit markets ability to serve underserved and previously overlooked markets. 

Insurance 

InsureTech is a relatively slower adopter compared to broader FinTech. Businesses are now investing in automated processes from claims, quotes, and modelling and niches are appearing. Insurance markets are relatively traditional and ripe for disruption.
