Fintech is hot

Fintech is still hot. Since 2010 more than $50 bn has been invested in the industry. Although there was a slight dip in Q4 2015, the Q1 2016 figures still show an increase of investments compared to the previous year.

In many countries such as the UK and Netherland, regulators are lowering the barriers to entry in the financial sector which has led to a stream of new Fintech companies starting up. Five Degrees frequently visit Fintech events such as Finovate, Money 2020, Future of Digital Banking and each year we see new innovative Fintech companies emerging. Most of these new companies are established by entrepreneurs bringing extensive experience from established players in banking and technology.
