Accelerated Disruption in FinTech

The use of mobile wallets is just one of the signals of the fintech disruption globally.

The Fastest Growing FI’s are all Digital

It’s not just the pace of investment either. Obviously fintech offered critical utility as the pandemic hit and consumers around the globe became more dependent than ever on e-commerce, mobile wallets, mobile money platforms and the like. But something more fundamental was also happening.

Digital Scaling — The Killer App

NuBank, Revolut, Chime, N26, Monzo, Wise, NYDIG and thousands of other Fintech startups globally are growing like never before thanks to increased digital adoption that only accelerated during the pandemic. NuBank became the largest bank in LatAm not because of an overheated fintech bubble, but because NuBank’s fundamentals fit much more closely with digital-first economies of the 21st century, versus the outmoded metrics we typically applied to banks in the last century.

The First Trillion Dollar Bank?

Clearly, the potential growth of players like NuBank, WeBank, Ant, Revolut and others is the fact that they can enter new markets relatively easily due to the fact they don’t require branch networks or agents to enable distribution. The market has already recognized that customer behavior has shifted to digital-first during the pandemic, and players designed from the ground up for the digital world have significant advantages in acquisition, operations, customer experience and servicing capabilities. In 2018 WeBank already handled 98% of its daily customer support enquiries via AI, as an example.
