“Fintech companies can help banks create new revenue streams and drive customer engagement in digital banking. But this is not all about technology, it is also about new ways of working and developing relationships inside the data ecosystem.
I see the fintech world changing into a more collaborative industry. And for sure, is one of the most interesting industries to work.”
What do you think are the main challenges in Fintech, especially for women?
‘’The Fintech industry has a gender diversity problem, with women representing only 29% of the staff in the sector. ‘I couldn’t count the number of times I was the only woman in a business meeting.
There is an equal responsibility among all of us to promote diversity in fintech. Although there are still challenges in the industry, I have a positive outlook as all it takes is companies putting policies into place to support their team members.’’
