Financial Technology, also known as “FinTech” is evolving at a lightning speed, reshaping the way people manage, invest, and transact with money. FinTech companies are not just keeping up with the curve; they are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible – from overhauling payment systems and lending platforms, and streamlining digital banks to introducing robo-advisors. In fact, a research study shows that the FinTech-as-a-Service market is projected to achieve a valuation of USD 995.9 billion by the year 2032.
What’s driving this evolution?
Consumer demand is a key catalyst behind the rapid FinTech revolution. Today, consumers expect financial services that are convenient, accessible, and efficient, driven in part by the proliferation of smartphones and increasing tech-savviness. Simultaneously, regulatory bodies globally have recognized FinTech’s potential to enhance financial inclusion and innovation, resulting in the introduction of supportive regulations that encourage experimentation and growth within the sector. 
Investor confidence has also played a pivotal role, with billions of dollars flowing into FinTech companies, a testament to the disruptive promise they hold. This financial influx has enabled startups to rapidly expand and diversify their services, catering to a broader customer base and fostering customer loyalty. 
These bold moves are vital for FinTech firms seeking to stay competitive in a dynamic environment, encompassing everything from embracing AI advancements to enhance customer experiences and optimize operations to global expansion strategies that transcend national borders. Through partnerships with local financial institutions and compliance with regional regulations, these companies are setting the pace for innovation in the financial technology arena.
Here are 3 big moves in the FinTech industry that are currently dominating news headlines:

Citi Makes Substantial Investment to FinTech Startup Rextie
FinTech is notorious for overhauling traditional banking’s obsolete practices, but in a surprising turn of events, top world bank Citi announced its funding participation in FinTech startup Rextie, Peru’s leading online exchange company. Citi’s investment distinguishes Rextie as one of the pioneering FX fintech companies in Latin America to secure funding from a leading global bank.
