Here’s to the coolest in FinTech!

Thanks for making the 2nd IBS Intelligence Global FinTech Innovation Awards a great success!

2020 brought to the fore the absolute need for digitalization across all industries and especially in Financial Services. The multitude of challenges exacerbated by the global pandemic has forced Financial Services firms to innovate at a speed never seen before. Financial services firms along with banking technology and FinTech companies have heroically risen to the occasion and dramatically transformed the industry.
