FinTech Focus: Catch latest developments of the week
By Delisha Fernandes
Social media platforms can offer insights helping FinTech and digital payments companies analyse consumer behaviour and preferences, the most critical factors in present times, as well as trends in the industry.
With the ever-evolving digital landscape, it has become imperative for financial institutions to offer services that cater to the changing needs of consumers, and channels of interaction like social media can bridge that gap.
Similarly, numerous financial technology companies utilise social media platforms to make announcements pertaining to product offerings, mergers, partnerships, and other developments to garner wider attention and to better reach their target audience.
Let’s look at the top six announcements made by the FinTech bigwigs this week:
Checkout.com appoints Standard Chartered Bank as banking partner in MENA. The partnership leverages technology to seamlessly integrate payment systems and deliver an infrastructure that will power our next phase of growth.
