FinTech is becoming increasingly more important in the world of financial services and is allowing the industry to become more efficient and agile. New and old technologies are causing positive disruption that affect the mid-to-back office in a range of processes.
We are completely immersed in the financial services industry and find it invaluable that our clients stay on top of FinTech changes, progress and legal affairs.
Traditional and emergent FinTech is characterised globally by incumbent models and infrastructure being near “end of life”, regulation, monetisation of data, fraud and identity protection and investment in new ventures.
The industry is defined by traditional and emerging technologies, from larger incumbent technology firms, supporting the financial services industry to middle and back office disruption.
For BLP, technology and financial services is everything. We’re immersed in the industry, we get the terminology, the business concepts and, of course, the technology.
