Two major trends Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are going to define the future of fintechs, said Soumya Rajan, Founder & CEO, Waterfield Advisors, at the FE Modern BFSI Summit. As for the emerging trends in the financial sector, Rajan noted two big themes, connectivity and computing, which are going to shape up the future. As far as connectivity is concerned, India has 750 million smartphone users, which is likely to become 1 billion by 2026. Rajan said that on the demographics front, the Gen Ys, and the Gen Zs are digital natives, which rely more on the technology for their financial services. In 2021, around 770 billion digital transactions happened globally, of which around 40 billion were with regard to mobile money.
Anyone who has transferred money to another person's account without having to deal with a bank employee -- by e-mail, text, call or physical visit to a bank branch -- is no longer a total stranger to financial technology. But keeping up with developments in the market can be dizzying, as fintech has grown exponentially of late, helped in part by the global health crisis that provided the impetus to reexamine processes and put the customer at the core of solutions. Fintech trends have been disruptive and will continue to be so especially now that the mobility restrictions since 2020 forced financial institutions to take a good look at what a digital economy is going to look like. Looking at the practical responses of banks to stay agile during the pandemic by examining processes that can be automated and making them more customer-centric, we can see that financial institutions have already set into motion what could be the beginnings of digital transformation. In some countries, financial firms are proactively taking steps to understand how their organizations can benefit from the wide array of available and emerging technologies.

Marc Wojno has been a writer and editor in the financial field for more than two decades. A new report published this month by data analytics firm FICO shows that a growing percentage of younger U.S. consumers -- specifically Gen X, Millennial and Gen Z groups -- consider digital banks, such as Cash App, Chime and PayPal, as their primary checking account provider, not traditional megabanks such as Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo. The report identified five competitive threats to traditional banks and credit unions, and what those companies need to do to stay competitive: Overdraft; savings and investing; buy now, pay later (BNPL); niche neobanks; and open banking. The report, Counterattack: Banks Field Guide to Fintech Disruption, in conjunction with research from Cornerstone Advisors, notes that although many US consumers are pleased with the quality and services of traditional banks and credit unions, the percentage of those three younger generations who chose fintechs over brick-and-mortars as their primary banks have doubled, at 12% of customers since 2020. FICO's report stated that for Millennials and Gen X-ers, the percentages dropped by nearly half during that same period.
