Fintech (Financial Technology) is an ecosystem supported by disruptive technology used to make banking and financial services more accessible, faster, cost and time effective, and easy to perform and consume. A recent report on the Future of Fintech and Banking by consulting firm Accenture estimates that global Fintech investment has tripled since 2008, and will rise to $500 billion before the decade ends. Fintech is not only going to be an enabler but also the driving engine of the future.
