Mobile banking is a large part of the fintech industry. In the world of personal finance, consumers have increasingly demanded easy digital access to their bank accounts, especially on a mobile device. Most major banks now offer some kind of mobile banking feature.
Investment & Savings
Fintech has caused an explosion in the number of investing and savings apps in recent years. More than ever, the barriers to investing are being broken down by companies like Robinhood, Stash and Acorns. While these apps differ in approach, each uses a combination of savings and easy, small dollar investing to introduce consumers to the markets.
Machine Learning & Trading
Being able to predict where markets are headed is the Holy Grail of finance. With billions of dollars to be made, it's no surprise machine learning has played an increasingly important role in fintech. The power of this AI-subset lies in its ability to run massive amounts of data through algorithms designed to spot trends and risks.
Moving money around is something fintech is very good at. The phrase “I’ll Venmo you” is now a replacement for “I’ll pay you later.” Venmo, of course, is a go-to mobile payment platform. Payment companies have changed the way we all do business. It's easier than ever to send money digitally anywhere in the world. In addition to Venmo, popular payment companies include Zelle, Paypal, Stripe and Square.
Fintech is also overhauling credit by streamlining risk assessment, speeding up approval processes and making access easier. Billions of people around the world can now apply for a loan on their mobile devices, and new data points and better risk modeling is expanding credit to underserved populations.
