What Is Fintech?

Financial technology, or fintech, is a broad term for the intersection of financial services and technology. Beyond convenience, fintech is rapidly changing the way we think about money: Who accesses it, who controls it and how to protect it.


The global fintech market is predicted to reach $190 billion by 2026, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 13.9%.¹


Fintech is reshaping financial services and industries, as well as major banks, global markets and the government regulations that oversee them all. Categories include peer-to-peer lending, digital wealth management, insurance, consumer finance, real estate, blockchain, automation and more.
