FinTech is a gamechanger; it is the kind of revolution that is shaking up the financial services industry, blurring the lines between the financial services sector and the technology sector, and causing upheaval in an industry that is generally known to be stable and rather boring.But interest in fintech has been driven largely by consumer demands for faster, cheaper, and more efficient finance and banking services, and fintech is now quickly becoming a significant part of a lot of people’ lives. Fintech, after all, not only makes current banking services efficient, but also provides a platform for these services to expand it’s reach to those who previously had no access to financial services. Not only that, fintech has also arrested the attention of investors.What’s interesting to watch is how players of the industry deal with fintech. Do they consider fintech a threat or an opportunity? Where does fintech play into the current processes of the existing institutions? And since finance is so deeply rooted into both the daily lives of people and the larger entity that is the economy of a country, how are countries dealing with the financial revolution that fintech has brought to their shores?
