The FinTech market continues to evolve and grow rapidly in 2018. The global investment in FinTech reached an all-time high in 2017 and the net funding value crossed US$30 billion. Amidst the changing consumer demands, FinTech has evolved and continues to disrupt and reshape commerce, payments, lending, and capital markets among others.

FinTech investments continue to be concentrated in mature hubs such as the United States, London, and Hong Kong driven by presence of high-quality talent base backed by strong infrastructure. However, investors and startups are progressively focusing on emerging hubs such as Mumbai, Bangalore, Singapore, Sao Paulo, and Dublin for FinTech delivery, primarily due to increasingly talent and cost pressures in mature locations.
