FinTech Crown of the world Asia: –
Compared to European territory wherein the Financial Innovation and thereby the adoption standards of FinTech is quite on the dull side, Asian territory has up the ante and have shown the openness to move towards the modern FinTech innovative arena rather than sticking back on traditional Banking and Financial methods.
Lead by China-Biggest amongst the alternative lending market holding 90% of market share and US amongst second place, wherein in tandem they dominate a whopping 95% of the FinTech market globally. UK finds itself in the third position and its FinTech market share is only estimated to rise at the netted value of $4.8Billion as compared to China’s $265.7Billion.
The hugely success story amongst China holding its ground as lead FinTech Market in global arena is pack of lead Chinese investors who have swiftly adopted to the paradigm shift term called ‘FinTech’ and are in pursuit to enhance operations of their banks and financial institutions with ample support from adoption of next-gen latest technologies like AI and Machine Learning to solve critical finance-banking relevant issues such as assessing risk and identifying frauds.
According to Ryan Battles, EY’s Banking and Capital Markets Lead for the Americas, “banking in the Americas is on the verge of catching the wave that had initially began with Apple and Amazon raising consumer expectations.”
Silicon Valley Mentality just bracing up in Europe: –
European territory that is disintegrated largely due to multi-languages, laws, and cultures and confined of one-sided business development within European territory itself is gradually breaking the shackles and pushing its boundaries in the way of large-scale business decisions in the present scenario.
The Silicon Valley an approach also known as ‘blitzscaling’, a terminology as coined by LinkedIn Co-Founder Reid Hoffman, that also hugely involves scaling at all costs that is inclusive of “performing actions that don’t scale” and for taking extreme steps of making deliberate choices without having all of the data thus,—sacrificing efficiency for a swift future.
European FinTech market might not be having the tech titans that the US or Asian continent boasts. Although they have a steady and powerful industrial infrastructure, they are largely tagged as ‘Losers’ due to their ‘hare and tortoise’ style setting. However, it still has all major potential of becoming the global FinTech leader, in case Europe flexes its traditional gradual prowess when it comes to AI. During 2018, with the rollout of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the European Union with its vision of being termed as not just true regulatory and law superpower but also as a tech superpower.
The latest trendsetting in the European Union is the widespread adoption and regulation of AI through an ‘ecosystem of excellence’ and an ‘ecosystem of trust’. Although it is highly riskier for the European Union as they themselves are on the whole “Risk-free economical zone.” As stated by Augmentum Fintech, however, it is worth its take to implement the risk as one of the lead economy the UK itself that continues to attract by far the huge share of fintech investment in the European Union, with 83% of all European 2019 FinTech investment.
