Career

Career opportunities in FinTech are exploding as the sector continues to expand and disrupt all segments of Financial Services.

FinTech Disruption

FinTech covers technology-enabled business model innovation in the financial sector through disintermediation. This is currently disrupting and blurring industry boundaries to revolutionize how firms create and deliver products and services and provide new gateways for entrepreneurship and seed opportunities for inclusive growth.

Drivers of Growth

Demand for Fintech is growing due to a large digitally-savvy population seeking newer technologies with greater convenience and the need for greater profitability by Financial Institutions. On the supply side, we see an increased proliferation of connected devices, coupled with falling device and data costs, and a push by Government initiatives towards a digital economy.
