Financial Technology (FinTech) refers to a cluster of emerging innovations that have the potential to revolutionize the nature of the finance industry, enhancing the productivity of financial firms by employing data science and cyber technologies. Global investment in FinTech has been so active in recent years that the Monetary Authority of Singapore has launched an initiative, the FinTech and Innovation Group, and pledged to spend S$225 million to develop the FinTech sector in Singapore.
