Deloitte defines financial technology (“FinTech”) as “digital innovation in the financial sector. At its inception, the understanding of FinTech was limited to innovative ways of facilitating payments and transactions. Underpinned by revolutionary shifts in internet and mobile technology in recent years, the realm of FinTech has witnessed explosive growth. Nowadays, it refers to a wide variety of technological interventions within the financial services arena, such as crowdfunding, online customer acquisition, mobile wallets, P2P lending, MPOS (mobile point of sale), MSME (micro, small, and medium enterprise) services, personal financial management, private financial planning, Blockchain and cryptocurrencies. FinTech is also used to describe businesses that aim to provide financial services by making use of software and modern technology.”
