Increasing Investment in Fintech

According to Media Radar, venture capital investors poured $44.4 billion into young fintech companies in 2020 compared to just $1.1 billion a decade earlier. This represents a whopping 3936% increase from venture capitalists—further demonstrating the incredible rise of fintech organizations in recent years. But according to some experts, this investment is only just beginning.

Sustaining Long-Term Growth

In an article published in The New York Times, investor Mark Goldberg believes that current investment in the fintech industry is only scratching the surface of its potential. Over the next 20 years, Goldberg anticipates up to $1 trillion of market value being poured into new fintech companies—and these investments will likely be funded by traditional financial institutions.

Support from Big Banks

As global technology continues its rapid evolution, banks and financial services companies will need to keep pace. From enhancing their overall customer experience to innovating with new and improved products, this sector must stay atop the latest tech trends to survive among fierce competition. And as industry giants like Goldman Sachs, Citibank, and JPMorgan & Chase continue to ramp up their fintech investments, look for other institutions to follow suit.

Summary

While it remains to be seen just how much growth and expansion will come within the fintech industry, the global buzz surrounding these emerging companies is incredibly encouraging. As more entrepreneurs with innovative ideas enter the fintech market, the results could change the world of finance as we know it. One thing has become increasingly clear: the future of fintech is bright!
