Discover the future of banking

Following the boom years of 2014 and 2015, the United States now accounts for 57% of the global market for FinTechs. It’s a position that can be explained by the scale of a market that includes nearly 40% of the world’s millionaires. This environment enables FinTechs to grow in a very dynamic way, launching solutions focused on payments, credit, and more recently, asset management and investment banking.
An alternative solution may involve working with large companies through partnerships or accelerators, such as the Fintech Accelerator by L’Atelier BNP Paribas (unavailable link). One thing is certain: FinTechs offer valuable expertise to large companies in terms of their knowledge of customer needs. These are frequently win-win partnerships, as startups are increasingly opting for B2B (Business to Business) or B2B2C (Business to Business to Consumer) activities in order to ensure revenue and identify partners or investors.
First, they should install and test their products, so they can use customer feedback to improve. Next, they should work to build trust by identifying the regulatory environment, improving their products, and continually identifying better ways to meet customers’ needs.
