Finance is one of those industries that has so far been relatively unchanged and untouched by change that has happened over the past couple of decades. Barring the introduction on internet banking and the soaring use of ATMs, banks and major financial firms have not seen any major changes that could totally disrupt the industry. However, that is now changing. With the introduction of mobile internet, banking and finance are seeing a major challenge from startups and tech companies.
The possibility of banking and investing from the palm of your hand has allowed startups to creep up on banks and Financial MNCs and take a major chunk of their business. In order to avoid competition, banks and MNCs have teamed up with these tech companies and startups to come up with solutions and services that benefit everyone. The major challenge is the unavailability of qualified professionals and talent.
