The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to a head the importance of a digital economy. In this context, competition is set to accelerate in the fintech sector as the digital shift will make stakeholders fight for market share, according to tech advisory and investment firm GP Bullhound.


In its latest market report on the fintech space, the firm gives insights on COVID-19’s impact on fintech, exploring which sub sectors are likely to be impacted more than others.  According to the report, though COVID-19 has and will continue to be a challenge for all fintech participants, some sub-sectors, including banking software-as-a-service (SaaS), know-your-customer (KYC)/anti-money laundering (AML) technologies, and machine learning (ML)/artificial intelligence (AI), will likely benefit from the increased shift to a digital economy.

APIs (application programming interfaces) exist to provide real-time visibility into bank accounts, brokerage accounts, 401ks, loan balances, and anything else that touches currency. Just like when you download an app on your phone and you give it permission to “access Photos” or “access Contacts,” your financial data can now be seamlessly permissioned anywhere, instantly. Just not to the government. And this is precisely what may need to change for small- and medium-sized business assistance to take hours, not months.
