He discussed paradigm shifts, buying experience vs. products, ownership vs. access, big tech vs. traditional banks, financial services being forced to reinvent themselves, and findings of the World Fintech Report (customer centricity, complimentary strengths, selecting correct partners). He further explained how Capgemini has a process by which fintechs can be certified on the FinTechVisor platform through Capgemini’s evaluation process. Lubomir Olach, Director of International Development at Efma, explained the process for Fintech startups to join the FinTechVisor platform.
