What is fintech?

Fintech, or financial technology, refers to the technology and innovation that aims to compete with traditional financial methods and the delivery of financial services. Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Cloud computing, and big data are considered to be the “ABCD” of the fintech world.

In broad terms, fintech describes any company using the internet, mobile devices, software tech, or cloud services. Many fintech products are designed to connect consumers’ finances with easy-to-use technology, although the term can also be applied to business-to-business technologies.

As such, fintech companies are now forced to compete to provide the best platforms, experience, and features for their customer base.

Potentially, fintech poses a threat to traditional brick-and-mortar banks or financial institutions.

Now, it’s possible to manage funds, trade stocks, pay for food, or even manage your insurance through this technology, often from your very own smartphone.

The tools provided by fintech are changing the way many consumers track, manage and facilitate their finances.

This is precisely the purpose of fintech, to give consumers direct access to their finances through easy-to-use technology. But what other uses does fintech offer?
