At the beginning of the year, investors from all around the globe gathered in London to discuss ideas about investing in new products, such as fintech, associated with the rapid improvements in technology. FinTech, which is the abbreviation for financial technology, is an emerging financial services sector, which has attracted the business world’s attention because it seems capable of producing major profits for anyone that is willing to risk money by investing in the industry.

In the insurance industry, there is a lack of innovation and the user experience is pretty horrible.”
