FAQ

By 2022, the global fintech market is expected to be worth $309.98 billion.

Due to its scale and diversity, FinTech is often regulated by multiple agents, whether that’s multiple government regulators or a combination of several kinds, like self-regulators and market regulators.

The dynamic and innovative products FinTechs offer are changing the landscape of banking. These include crypto-finance, AI bank staff, mobile payment technologies and sophisticated spending analysis. Increased efficiencies and enhanced consumer experiences are capturing new markets and managing risk.

With the exponential evolution of technologies and the strong data-gathering abilities of FinTech, it’s a very attractive sector to invest in. The sector has exploded in recent years while traditional banking struggles to keep up.
