If there is one industry that grew exponentially during Covid-19, and still continues to do so, it’s Fintech.

Financial ServicesFintech refers to the “financial technology” that overlaps with both banking and payment processing systems.

While there are many ways of defining it, it generally refers to any organization or service that provides financial products and services using technology. This usually includes software or virtual apps instead of traditional brick-and-mortar channels. Like physical banks or ATM payment processors.

This also includes all branches of digital banking, payment processing, Fintech startups, and financial data providers. All under one umbrella basically.

Making Financial Services Affordable

With the introduction of Fintech, banks were suddenly under incredible pressure to stay competitive. Especially during the early days of Covid-19. The need for digital payment solutions rose exponentially and with this changing landscape, solutions were needed fast.

DevelopingWhether you were getting a payday loan in Toronto, or some personal loan in Australia, now the only way to do it was online, or in some other digital manner. This cut down costs and made things quite affordable for the masses.

Due to this, there has been a massive increase in the number of Fintech companies worldwide.

As these new ventures are growing, traditional banks are taking note and making plans to enter the space themselves.

For example, The Bank of England and Bank of Canada joined World Bank and launched a new global Fintech initiative in Paris.

The new initiative, dubbed “Fintech Lab,” was founded to help countries around the world establish themselves as global Fintech hubs. Fintech Lab will also be focused on promoting financial inclusion, including financial literacy for all

Developing Countries Love Fintech

Due to Covid-19, the underdeveloped banking infrastructure in developing countries needed a complete overhaul. This time was seen as an opportunity to bring in new innovative ideas from the Fintech space. To completely change and revolutionize their current systems.

No matter how you look at it, it seems like Fintech is here to stay.

As long as there are products and services that cut costs, Fintech is simply destined to grow in the developing world.
