Technology is significantly changing consumer culture and the user experience in the world of finance as well, which for many years has been burdened by conservatism and bureaucratic fatigue. While standards are being re-defined, today’s customers expect convenient, accessible and rapid processes and services, including when seeking out banking, insurance, commerce and investment services. Traditional institutions therefore need to expand and upgrade their array of offered services, alongside or vis-à-vis new players – fintech ventures or companies – which are developing innovative technologies, such as automated investment management platforms, trading and payment systems, loan and mortgage apps, data analysis algorithms, and more.
With over 500 fintech companies, the sector in Israel is receiving global attention and attracting investors from all over the world, while serving hundreds of financial institutions.
