WE NEED FINTECH NOW MORE THAN EVER

The coronavirus pandemic has changed everything, from the way we live and work to the way we consume and get basic services. Financial services will never look the same again.

In this new reality, financial services companies will have to accelerate the development of their digital services, protect their customer data, and continue to improve their user friendliness, ease-of-use, transparency and seamless service on a variety of online platforms.

Companies that will not adapt to the new normal will fail. The fintechs are now needed more than ever.

FinTech Junction is a global community that brings together business and tech leaders from banks, financial institutions, fintechs, startups & investors.

Our annual conference and bi-monthly meetups & virtual conferences present the best fintech solutions that enable businesses to stay relevant.

We invite you to join us today to take your businesses to the next level!

Meirav Harel
Meirav Harel, Founder & CEO @ MHfintechs

The collaboration between startups and financial entities creates the potential for innovation and excellence for both worlds. The new ‘building block’ can be seen as an important part of the creation of the “next step in the evolution of finance”.

One example of fintech development is the ability to create Digital Currencies, that have been issued till now, mostly by startup companies. These days they are also being developed by Central Banks and Tech Giants.

Due to the ability to ‘program’ this new type of Money with Smart Contracts – Ethical and Moral dilemmas are raised. How will the future of Finance and Money look like? That is up to us to determine.
