Fintech (financial technology) is a broad category made up of companies that bring new technology to finance. For example, new digital payment-processing solutions, person-to-person payment applications, convenient mobile banking applications, – are all considered a part of the global fintech disruption happening worldwide.
The prospects of investing in fintech are quite interesting. Even after the growth of the cashless payments space in recent years, the majority of payment transactions around the world are still done in cash. And even though online banking institutions offer interest rates and fee structures that are typically much better than those of traditional banks, the majority of consumers still use branch-based banking for their financial needs.
Under the fintech umbrella there are several types of companies:
  • Payment processing
  • Online and peer-to-peer (P2P) lending
  • Online and mobile banking
  • Financial software
  • Financial services.
For those looking to get investing exposure to financial technology companies, there is a dozen of effective publicly traded instruments. You may want to take a look at the funds incorporating a broader selection of technology or global trend themes. Or you may consider instruments focusing specifically on Future’s Mobility, like the ones featured in the selection below.
