Fintech, the portmanteau of finance and technology, represents the collision of two worlds. Winners in the fintech space are primarily emerging at a regional level rather than global, similar to traditional retail banking. This is a direct effect of the regulatory complexity that exists within countries resulting in fintech solution providers investing more in regional compliance rather than launching a global effort.
The buzz around artificial intelligence (AI) applications in fintech is at an all-time high, but to date, a few standalone use cases have been scaled and monetized. Instead, more advanced modeling techniques, such as machine learning are supplementing traditional analytics in fintech. Alongside AI, blockchain has begun to take over the conventional banking system. Blockchain applications help reduce paperwork and also address a critical concern of fintech, security, by offering organizations an option of storing information on tamper-resistant ledgers.
