TLDR: The fintech sector is beginning to see signs of recovery after a turbulent period. Eight key themes will power the comeback of fintech in 2024, including:

  • Consolidation within the neobank and insurtech sectors, leading to mergers and acquisitions that will reward the strongest players and eliminate the weakest.
  • A potential uptick in private investment in fintech firms, as well as a resurgence in fintech initial public offerings.
  • The profitability of buy now, pay later (BNPL) services as companies like Klarna and Affirm find ways to make a profit on BNPL offerings.
  • The continued growth of banks offering banking-as-a-service, which allows smaller banks to increase their deposits.
  • The profitability and growth of stablecoins, despite regulatory concerns.
  • The increasing demand for fast, cheap cross-border payment solutions.
  • The growth of alternative investments, such as investments into non-traditional offerings like fine art, crypto, and real estate.
  • The drive for innovation and growth within the fintech sector that is pushing it forward.
