The Covid-19 storm continues to rage around us but the Fintech machine continues to churn - with some analysts predicting that the current situation is already helping fintech start ups as demand for online financial services soars. This accelerated demand for digital financial services has also led tech giant Microsoft to partner with Fintech Firm Plaid to produce an integrated finance app right within Excel. Dutch neobank Bunq is not sitting still either and has continued its aggressive push towards becoming the world’s first and only carbon neutral bank. Not all is well though as VISA suffers transaction volume decline due to reduced commercial activity around the world. Funding is doing better this week, with stellar numbers coming out of China, such as 220 million USD for 4paradigm. Japanese FinTech Kyash is also sitting pretty after closing a 45 million USD.
We hope you had a good week and are staying safe & healthy! Eager to learn more? Check out the insights section on our website!
