Spain is consolidated as the key country for fintech, according to a study by Deusto Formación. According to this firm, 2020 has been a turning point for the sector, becoming the sixth largest alternative financing market in Europe, with an annual increase of 15%.
Spain concentrates up to 463 companies of this type that operate in our country, according to data from Finnovating, a world reference platform in Fintech. In fact, a BBVA report maintains that last year fintech companies moved 60 million euros in the country, the majority from small and medium-sized financial companies that try to contribute new ideas to the sector, and reformulate the provision of services through mobile applications or big data.
“It is a sector in continuous innovation, and a job opportunity for entrepreneurs who generate value to the industry”, say sources from Deusto Formación, an online continuous training center specialized in business training programs and new technologies, and which currently teaches the Advanced Course in Fintech, Blockchain and Digital Finance. “What users value most are the transparency in the offer and the efficiency in the procedures.”
Up to 93% of these companies were started by groups of entrepreneurs, who wanted to democratize access to financial services. Therefore, the applications that develop
are characterized by their usability and simplicity, maintains this analysis.
