Fintech has unleashed a golden age of innovation in consumer financial services. Highly specialized, free from legacy, and often able to bypass bank regulation, new entrants have gone after every piece of the banking value chain, reducing friction and addressing unmet needs. Initiatives like the PSD2 embolden new entrants further, enabling a variety of new business models that cut across industry lines and provider types.

This report identifies key trends enabling fintech, different regional ecosystems globally, and the evolving categories of fintech-led disruption. It covers not just niche startups but tech firms, telcos, adjacent verticals, and incumbent banks digitizing through acquisition and/or transformation.
