In the last four years, venture capital investment in fintech has increased more than 600%. Is this exponential growth a sign of a new bubble, or the beginning of the end of banking as we know it?

Not every bank will survive the upcoming tsunami of technological disruption. Emerging players in fintech are well-positioned to dramatically reshape the customer experience with game changing new business models. This new wave of disruptive innovation represents a big threat to the traditional model of a bank, but also simultaneously creates unparalleled opportunities for internal innovations and the enormous potential for strategic partnerships between these established financial institutions and new technology-centric players.
