What is FinTech?

Fintech [Financial Technology] describes the innovative technologies that are making the financial services industry more efficient, personal, and secure. Powered by innovations within mobile, big data, machine learning, and blockchain technology, companies within Fintech are working to disintermediate or bypass incumbent financial players and challenge traditional institutions with new solutions that are changing applications, processes, products, and business models.


The FinTech Revolution

“FinTech startups are changing finance—for the better.”

From payments to wealth management, from peer-to-peer lending to crowdfunding, a new generation of startups is taking aim at the heart of the finance industry—and a pot of revenues that Goldman Sachs estimates is worth $4.7 trillion. Like other disrupters from Silicon Valley, “fintech” firms are growing fast.
