Top 10 Fintech trends to watch out for in 2024

Open Banking & API Integration  

Open Banking is a secure method of sharing financial data with multiple providers that promotes innovation by allowing businesses to offer personalized and convenient financial services. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can benefit from Open Banking by integrating APIs into their systems, which can help them manage their finances better, forecast cash flow, and process transactions more smoothly. It also facilitates faster and more secure payments, streamlining business operations. Open Banking is just getting started in the USA and Pay-By-Bank is expected to be one of the major focus areas for many companies for B2B payment movements as well as recurring B2C movements.  


Neo Banking  

Neo or digital-only banks offer streamlined and online-only financial services without traditional branches. In 2024, neo-banks are all set to compete with traditional banks by offering more sophisticated financial products. These banks cater to tech-savvy customers by providing seamless mobile and online banking experience, competitive rates, and fees. Additionally, they offer agility and digital convenience for entrepreneurs and startups. In emerging economies, these neo-banks are expected to play a pivotal role in 2024, as traditional banks are looking for new avenues to generate more business. While Neo-Banks are expected to remain as secondary banks only, but their ability to further offer funding to businesses or even support cross-border payments is building momentum for new consumers to be partial towards Neo Banks. 


Reg Technology    

Regulatory compliance is critical to any business, and RegTech is here to help. RegTech offers a range of technologies and solutions to automate compliance processes, using data analytics, AI, and MI to monitor regulatory changes and ensure that businesses remain compliant. By 2024, advanced RegTech solutions can simplify compliance, reduce risks, and enhance transparency in financial operations. Every major Fintech player is focusing on building technology which can help them become a bigger and leaner player. In the past five years, Fintech has shifted from being technology resistant to technology champions today.  


Robo Advisors   

Robo advisors are investment platforms that use artificial intelligence to offer low-cost advice. They are becoming increasingly popular and can cater to a broader range of investors in 2024. These systems provide personalized recommendations, making investing accessible to everyone. In addition, they help optimize portfolios, minimize risks, and increase returns while providing transparency and control.   

DeFi (Decentralized Finance)    

DeFi, or decentralized finance, uses blockchain to create traditional financial systems without intermediaries. In 2024, DeFi based lending, borrowing, and trading applications might expand. Businesses and entrepreneurs can participate in a global financial system without traditional banks, making raising capital, transactions, and investment opportunities easier. 


Smart Contract   

Smart contracts are digital agreements that are encoded with specific contract terms. They offer a secure, tamper-proof, and efficient method for managing various financial transactions and agreements. Smart contracts have a wide range of applications, which can help to reduce the need for intermediaries and paperwork, thereby saving time and money. This trend has shown promise in recent years but has not yet moved to its full potential.  


Buy Now Pay Later   

Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) is becoming popular among e-commerce platforms, providing consumers with flexible payment options without traditional credit cards. Integrating BNPL can boost sales and customer loyalty, as it attracts customers who may not have funds to pay upfront. Businesses offering these solutions can expect increased sales and cash flow. 


Voice Payments  

By 2024, voice-activated payment options might become more common, offering convenience and security during transactions. It is particularly convenient for mobile and online transactions, and businesses can enhance customer experiences and speed up transactions by integrating this technology, especially in the hospitality and retail sectors. 


Biometric Authentication  

Biometric authentication techniques like fingerprint and facial recognition are becoming more prominent in securing financial transactions. These methods offer an added layer of security and provide convenience, helping combat fraud and identity theft. For business owners and organizations, biometric authentication is an excellent way to enhance security for financial transactions, especially in online and mobile banking. It reduces the risk of unauthorized access and provides a seamless user experience. 



Gamification is being utilized in FinTech to engage and educate users. Businesses can enhance customer involvement and loyalty by making financial activities more interactive and enjoyable. Businesses can employ gamification to encourage customer engagement and loyalty, particularly in the banking and investment sectors.
