Special Issue "FinTech and the Future of Finance"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 October 2021).
Interests: payment systems; FinTech; industrial organisation; banking; network and monetary economics
This Special Issue is devoted entirely to different aspects of technology-enabled innovation in financial services (FinTech). At the heart of FinTech lies a better value proposition delivered to customers, be they consumers or businesses. Fintechs, bigtechs, and incumbent financial institutions innovate, compete, and collaborate at the same time, forming a complex ecosystem–network economy characterized by complicated relations.
Open banking based on interfaces (APIs) gains traction in different parts of the world triggered by regulation and market forces. It gives rise to various innovative financial services in all areas: from payments and lending to financial data management. A next step seems to be extending open banking to open finance or, further, to open data-driven economy where data become an impressive driver of revenues.
A rich set of key words reflects the nature of the papers which are welcome to be submitted for publication in this Special Issue. However, even such a rich collection of key words does not exhaust the topic of FinTech and the future of finance. Additionally, the future landscape of finance will likely not only be shaped by technological developments in new fields (e.g., mobile payments, tokenized cards), but competition with long-established products (e.g., cash) also has its role to play.
Therefore, all theoretical, empirical, conceptual, and practice-oriented articles representing economics and finance as well as management sciences relating to the main theme are encouraged for submission as contributions for this Special Issue of JRFM.
