Bobsguide calls 2014 “a landmark year for the financial technology (fintech) industry” and turns to its expert for an inside scoop on what to expect in 2015, citing Eugene Goland, President of DataArt.
“[Fintech industry] received billions of pounds of venture capital and although the burgeoning sector caused investors, government and regulatory bodies to proceed with caution, it has continued to thrive and has found its way back into all of our conversations this year. With predictions from key industry experts, bobsguide looks at some of the fintech trends that are set to grow even more in 2015.”
“According to industry experts, mobile payments will continue to thrive in 2015. Apple Pay’s introduction into the payments market may help to boost the number of people who use their smartphone at a payment terminal this year. Eugene Goland, President of DataArt said this year: “Mobility will be huge and competition in the connected devices arena will get particularly hot, especially with the pending launch of Apple watch and related technologies next year. The mobile payments space will experience a similar story as companies look to innovate ways to cut into Apple Pay’s anticipated hold on the market.”
