Value of Fintech investments globally 2008-2018

Investments in financial technology (Fintech) reached 34.4 billion U.S. dollars globally in 2017, and nearly that amount in the first six months of 2018. The term Fintech is used to describe the start-up innovative companies operating in the financial sector, which provide modern technology solutions to financial services companies.

What does Fintech include?

There are thousands of Fintech startups worldwide with a variety of functions. Many firms replace the functions of traditional financial institutions, using a technological advantage to perform the activities more efficiently. Others seek to reach consumers in new ways, or in ways that were inaccessible to certain individuals before.

The outlook for Fintech

Many people see Fintech as a threat to established firms, but the outlook is more complex than that. By reaching a greater number of consumers, Fintech may increase the overall size of the financial services industry, benefitting the existing players. Technologies from Fintech firms, such as blockchain, have a wide range of applications. These technologies are changing the way the established firms do business, making them more competitive as well.
