Fintech is the integration of technology into financial services to optimize, innovate and improve the established financial methods.

It facilitates financial inclusion by offering low-cost services and-- in that way—empowers a larger segment of the population through mobile apps and platforms.

Many factors that are influencing this space are-- the rising adoption of open banking APIs enabling new types of fintech partnerships, growth of embedded and invisible finance solutions, and increasing focus of startups on underserved customer segments in developing markets. Major technology themes include the rise of digital wallets, "buy now pay later" services, blockchain-based platforms and use of AI for personalized financial advice and anti-fraud solutions.
