KPMG makes case for FinTech innovative solutions
FinTechs are technology-based organisations that develop solutions, which position them to compete against or collaborate with Financial Institutions in the delivery of financial services. FinTechs aim to develop innovative solutions to existing challenges such as financial inclusion, access to credit, and personal finance management, access to insurance among others.
Whilst Nigeria’s growth wave is still in a relatively early phase as compared to global counterparts, the FinTech opportunities in Nigeria are expected to potentially redefine the financial services landscape over the next few years, even as the first wave of FinTech in Nigeria has been focused on innovation in payments.
