Q4 2019 Rise FinTech Report
Welcome to the Q4 2019 edition of the Rise FinTech report, our regular take on the latest trends, topics, successes and happenings in the world of FinTech.
In previous editions, we’ve looked at the FinTech scene in London, Israel and New York so this time we’re focusing on Asia, a region of constant innovation driven by China and India, which continue to be the largest FinTech hubs based on investment. Across the region, both consumer interest in startup technology and government support are considerable, making Asia fertile ground for disruptive innovation.
In this edition, we share some 2020 predictions and views from our Rise platform site leads as well as important developments in technology and trends that are impacting FinTech startups and the wider Asian population.
We also have an article by Abhishant Pant, founder of The FinTech Meetup, who has made an epic 25,000 km road trip to identify how advances in financial services and financial inclusion are helping address the needs of a large part of the population across Asia.
We hope you enjoy the contributions in this report.
