Live Event: 3 reasons why APIs are transforming fintech

With startup funding for fintechs in overdrive, APIs are driving forward the industry. Join FinTech & InsurTech Live on October 12-14 to find out more

With new and innovative APIs enabling startup fintechs and insurtechs to aggregate data, provide open banking services, and create swift-to-market products, their role in the success of the space cannot be understated. We outline three reasons why they are critical to the development and growth of the industry. 

#1 Supporting the digital ecosystem

The development of the digital ecosystem has become an essential element to the success of thousands of fintech and insurtech businesses. APIs form the backbone of this ecosystem and enable companies to form strategic and supportive partnerships that drive their operations forward, thus enabling them to scale fast and efficiently. In an industry as innovative as fintech, where the divide between “old” and “new” has never been greater, APIs also offer a solution for traditional financial firms and fintechs to work together.

#2  Agile principles

In today’s fast-paced, working environment, lean and agile principles are key in terms of core business practices. A recent Google Cloud survey showed that fintech and insurtechs using APIs report faster innovation and value from business partnerships than those without them. APIs streamline business processes, enable swift, data sharing, and enable companies to experiment with new product concepts, without the expense of bringing them to market first.

#3  Better customer experience

In our mobile-ready world, the customer experience and service delivery makes the difference between success and failure. Fintechs and insurtechs that place the needs of their users at the centre of operations, are markedly more successful than those that don’t. APIs provide firms with the ability to give their customers a truly seamless experience - and integrating APIs into a platform instantly enables companies to quickly and easily offer additional products and services.
