Fintech is a relatively new term that is used for a whole host of emerging technologies that help consumers and financial institutions in re-innovating the financial space for improved and faster processes. The industry has seen phenomenal growth largely because it has leveled the playing field between small players and traditional big banks and financial institutions.

Fintech application development runs on a foundation of data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and blockchain, each of which has seen massive innovation and transformation in recent times.

Today, it covers a slew of products and services. Mobile banking apps, online wallets, financial literacy services, and digital currency are familiar examples.

According to Outlook, one out of every three people avails at least one of these applications on a daily basis. Because of its disruptive innovation and explosive growth, Fintech has become a coveted industry for professionals from a wide range of backgrounds from engineering to marketing.

In this article, we will take a look at the foundations and applications of fintech specialization. We will also cover the basics of a career in fintech and what the best fintech courses in India entail.

A look at Fintech applications

Research says that India has boomed into the fastest-growing ecosystem when it comes to fintech application development.

Digital banking is a more convenient and cost-effective way of making transactions without using traditional methods. People are shifting over to mobile wallets instead of credit cards as we speak.

Investment and Wealth Management

Wealth Management and investment solutions allow people to keep track of their financial assets and manage their financial portfolio in a single application on their phones which can then be accessed from anywhere in the world.

Lending/loan

Fintech has made applying for loans as simple as clicking a button on your phone. Money lending solutions have made credits transparent and accessible to the non-affordable population.

Trading

Online trading apps have made investing in the market, monitoring risks in real-time, and sharing knowledge simple and easy.

InsurTech

Insurance companies are also embracing digital solutions to provide a better customer experience without the need to go through tedious processes of filling out lengthy applications.
