The Fintech Magazine Issue 15

Paris FinTech Forum is upon us – and what better way to kick off the new fintech decade!  In this of The Fintech Magazine, the Forum’s ever-energetic Founder Laurent Nizri takes stock of the five years since it launched and offers some 20/20 vision on the shape of financial technology to come.

While the world heads to Paris, for this issue of The Fintech Magazine, we sent our intrepid digital explorers to the far side of the earth to check out Asia’s dynamic, week-long fintech festivals in Singapore and Hong Kong where the innovation temperature is white hot.

One of the sectors advancing in leaps and bounds across the world is lending, where open banking is having a big impact. We check out how lendtechs are reducing risk for lenders and improving credit options for both businesses and individuals.

In wealth management, too, disruption is in the air. No longer the privilege of the elite, platforms such as eToro and Aegon – one B2C, the other B2B2C – are improving even modest wealth management and extending trading to the masses, creating huge opportunities to companies that can excel in this space…
