FinTech, Singapore, financial technology, India, Qatar, Philippines, Indonesia, Ajaib, Bharatpe, Cwallet, Zerone, MyntFinancial technology (FinTech) is a term used to describe financial services which are predominantly technology-driven or applying technology to improve financial services. With the revolution of the internet and heavy penetration of smartphones, access to technology has become highly affordable, further boosting the growth of FinTech, which has grown explosively.

FinTech partnerships are not the answer to every bank’s challenges. Partnering is only really required in areas where the banks existing core can’t deliver on the growth and transformation objectives. There are clear benefits for banks to partner with FinTechs and technology partners to drive revenue growth or cost improvements – they can access opportunities for earnings growth more quickly, cheaply and with fewer risks.

Some of the Top 5 FinTech partnerships in July could be seen here:

As part of the cooperation between Credit Suisse and KLARA, a subsidiary of Swiss Post, private clients can now also benefit from open banking services for the first time. Remote clients can make payments directly from their Credit Suisse account using the new ePost app from KLARA.

To pay invoices directly and without a separate login procedure, private clients of Credit Suisse can now link their accounts to the ePost app with a one-time opt-in process that allows them to initiate digital payments directly. KLARA’s ePost app communicates with the online banking system of Credit Suisse based on the secure, standardized bLink interface; this simplifies payment transactions for private clients.

It represents a single access channel to the leading national and international payment platforms.
