    Hi Harendrasingh,

    This is a great question, one that is especially relevant as huge developments are constantly being made in the area of financial technology.

    As the previous respondent pointed out, fintech is the shorthand way of saying financial technology. What is fintech exactly?

    Fintech encompasses essentially any sort of technology that is designed to change the way that people access, and interact with, money. That includes everything from payment services (Plaid, Illion, etc.) to personal finance (Lemonade, SoFi, etc.) to business financing (Lending Express, Kabbage, etc.). By using advanced algorithms and a fair bit of creativity, fintech companies are able to come up with amazingly useful solutions that are revolutionizing the way we all handle our finances.
