“As data will be the new lifeline for Financials, a repositioning and integration with other value chains will become essential. Also breaking up existing services and offering services into smaller components are inevitable. We will see an influx of forward integration with third parties and other sectors, as Fintechs are ideally positioned as catalysts and enablers in this process!”
