What’s buzzing in fintech? Targeting the alphabet soup of opportunities

24-06-2021 | Product webinar
Fintech has proven to be one of the few winners of Covid-19, as the pandemic has accelerated the already brisk digitalization of financial services. It is uniquely an investment segment where the adage of ‘standing still is going backwards’ still holds. And the structural switch from cash to cards is seen growing further once economies fully reopen and consumers can spend their savings again.

In this webinar, Koos Burema, Portfolio Manager, and Carl Ghielen, Client Portfolio Manager, outline how fintech has become an alphabet soup of opportunities. We now have CBDCs (central bank digital currencies), DeFi (decentralized finance) and BNPL (buy now pay later) platforms on our radar. And then there’s the old acronym favorites, the IPOs and M&A deals which are dominating the space.

At the end of the session, we covered:

  • How the Fintech strategy is positioned for the post-Covid-19 world
  • The opportunities presented by new and emerging fintech trends
  • The current state of the market including listings and takeovers
