Event Summary:
The emergence of financial technology companies (FinTech) –companies whose line of business combines software and technology to deliver financial services – will reshape and improve finance by cutting costs and expanding access to financial services. From payments to wealth management, from marketplace lending to equity crowdfunding, a new generation of startups is emerging within the FinTech sector,with firms attracting $19 billion in investment in 2015. Over $4.7 trillion of revenue at traditional financial services companies is at risk of disruption by the new FinTech entrants!
