Investment in Fintech companies – additional information

The most investment in financial technology companies occurred within P2P/online lending/scoring in 2014. Peer-to-peer (P2P) lending is the practice of lending money to individuals or businesses through online services that match lenders directly with borrowers. This service innovates beyond traditional bank lending, matching up those with extra cash, with those who need it.

The second highest investments occurred in online acquiring and m-wallets. Online acquiring services facilitate card payment processes through reduction of the time necessary to process a transaction, protection against fraud and more. An m-wallet/e-wallet /digital wallet is mobile payment system which allows customers to pay for purchases with their smart phones, storing user payment information and passwords so that they can be used for different websites and payment methods.
