As we conclude our five (5) part series on ‘Fintech and the Securities Market’, we highlight some of the many types of Fintechs in the securities industry.
Most Fintech product/service providers interact with their clients through platforms that are accessible via internet browsers and mobile applications. These platforms are designed and operated based on emerging innovations/technologies. The leading technologies supporting the provision of Fintech services are distributed ledger technologies (“DLTs”); big data analytics; cloud-computing; machine learning and application programme interfaces (“APIs”). While these technologies are widely used, they remain relatively unknown to the general public.
