These Fintech Trends will have the Most Significant Impact in the Future.

Fintech trends such as Blockchain, Unicorn, Accelerators, and APIs have become part of everyday conversation. Firms such as OnDeck in the US and TransferWise in the UK are rapidly growing.  We are also seeing capital rushing to embrace the investment opportunities provided by startups trying to disrupt financial services.

According to a study carried out by London and Partners, Fintech industry attracted $554 million of investment in 2015. This year is witnessing more focus than ever before in the field of Fintech. But what Fintech trends will have the most significant impact in the future?

Robo-advisors

Previously, consumer-focused Robo-advisors have mainly focused on providing simple and passive automated solution. However, the new Robo-advisors are offering more detail solutions. The new Robo-advisors allow financial advisors to provide investment tools and financial service. Companies to watch in this field include Forward Lane, Worth.fm and Polly Portfolio.

Regulatory Tech

Regulatory regimes change rapidly across the world and regulatory tech is becoming a billion dollar industry that is appealing to investors, financial institutions and regulators alike. The regulation tech companies offer services and tools that automate compliance tasks, reduce fraud risks and improve identity authentication and management.

Although this market is still young, expect this field to make great impacts in the future. A company such as QumRam, a Switzerland-based company, is developing rapidly by allowing every interaction between clients and advisors to be recorded, making all recordings auditable without physical intervention. One of their pioneer clients is UBS.

Automate all Experiences on Mobile

Risk management, student loan management, bill payments, mortgage origination, offers and promotions, marketing communication, customer care or any other financial service process have been automated.  Entrepreneurs are automating everything, making users  access services by just tapping their smartphones.

This field of fintech has a high potential to expand. There are a lot of customer experiences that are yet to be automated. A Company such as Blend Labs offers a Rocket Mortgage capability to many banks, automating the whole mortgage experience and making it accessible via smartphones.

Fintech that creates Social Impact

The success of fintech industry rests on the perception among the general public. Fintech firms that focus on solving global economic and social challenges are attracting more customers.  Today, firms that meet the needs of the (un)-banked are more accepted than traditional banks. In future, we are certain that fintech firms that solve social problems will make a lot of profit out of society. 

An example of fintech firms that are trying to solve both social and economic problems are PayActiv and BanQuApp.  Payactiv encourages better ways of saving while BanQuApp creates the economic identity in societies that are less privileged.

The above Fintech trends will continue to make an  impact now and in the future. We expect to see greater empowerment of people, major developments in customer experience and more lending facilitation through technology.
