While technology touches nearly every aspect of the modern world, financial services are still out-of-reach for millions of people, with more than 1.7 billion adults being unbanked throughout the world, and roughly 25 percent of U.S. households being either unbanked or underbanked.

Given the slow pace in which traditional financial institutions are embracing new technologies, other players are joining the landscape. These new companies, called FinTechs, are solving issues throughout the industry, in user-friendly and cost efficient fashion, by providing access to financial services for millions of humans – especially those living in remote places, who are displaced, or simply don’t have the means to travel to a bank branch.

In this segment Advancements will explore how technology is being used to accelerate the digital transformation taking place throughout the financial industry.

With a focus on FinConecta – a company founded with the purpose to build a global interconnected financial ecosystem – viewers will learn how the integration of different players in a financial ecosystem can generate value for all parties involved.

“We founded FinConecta to foster the integration to all financial players around the world in one single hub or ecosystem. Our technology reduces cost and friction, allowing the acceleration of financial inclusion,” said FinConecta Founder & CEO, Jorge Ruiz.

“This solution provides the know-how and the necessary technology to effortlessly move financial institutions into this new approach,” said Adam Brunet, associate producer for DMG Productions and the Advancements series. “We look forward to exploring how innovation and technology are impacting the financial sector.”
