FinTech describes new tech that seeks to improve and automate the delivery and use of financial services. At its core, FinTech is utilised to help companies, business owners, and consumers better manage their financial operations, processes, and lives by utilising specialised software and algorithms that are used on computers and, increasingly, smartphones. FinTech, the word, is a combination of “financial technology”.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the process of digitalisation for the financial services industry. Amidst the unprecedented market volatility, the industry’s appetite for digital technology has increased. The last month saw some significant deals being undertaken by FinTech companies.
