How has the Covid pandemic affected the Fintech Industry?

On behalf of the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance (CCAF) at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, the World Bank Group and the World Economic Forum, we are delighted to invite you to the launch of the Global Covid-19 Fintech Market Impact and Industry Resiliency Study. This session will present key findings, followed by a panel discussion.

Watch the launch here on 28th June, 15PM CET

As one of the largest empirical research undertakings on the effect of Covid-19 on the global fintech industry, this study draws upon panel data from 1,448 fintech firms from 192 countries. This study provides key insights into the medium- to long-term impact of the pandemic on the fintech industry, with special attention to fintech market performance, financial and operational performance indicators, reinforced demands for greater financial inclusion, and how government can support the quickly evolving fintech industry.

This study follows the Global Covid-19 FinTech Market Rapid Assessment Study published in November 2020, which focused on the short-term effects of Covid-19 on the fintech industry. Both studies were supported by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and the Ministry of Finance of Luxembourg.
