It’s 2016, and the red hot fintech sector has evolved immensely since Finovate first launched 10 years ago. Looking back at the demos from 2007, the major trends were PFM, text alerts, and bill payment.

Next month at FinovateFall in New York, we’re going to see some things that, compared to 2007, seem like the way the Jetsons would manage their finances. Here’s a breakdown of the biggest trends to watch for at FinovateFall:


We’ve seen authentication strategies evolve from a simple username and password to biometric technologies that leverage voice, behavioral, and facial recognition, as well as device tokenization and Touch ID to help banks increase security while decrease friction for end consumers.


With tech companies such as Uber and Venmo setting a higher bar for user experience, consumer expectations have also evolved. Financial services companies have to compete by offering more personalized services, real-time data and communication, and a user-friendly mobile features. Status quo is no longer an option.


Underwriting has advanced thanks to the availability of big data. This, combined with increased demand for alternative lending, makes lending a prime space for disruption.


The number of communication channels between financial services companies and their employees and end consumers is increasing. From email to SMS to video conferencing  and virtual meeting rooms, the challenge lies in reaching users through their preferred channels while remaining compliant.
