Welcome to October's edition of FinTech magazine.

There has been a notable increase in the number of women working in, and disrupting the fintech sector in recent years. However, there few that would disagree that more action is needed to encourage greater diversity.

In this month's issue, we celebrate those women innovators, entrepreneurs and business leaders in the sector. In our lead feature we hear from Neha Mehta, founder of FemTech Partners, who spoke to us at this year's Money 20/20 Asia event.

Mehta, who has worked in the sector for some time, founded FemTech Partners in order to promote and encourage women in the fintech space. She tells us that, while the growing fintech market is providing new and greater opportunities, there is more to be done, adding that "without a doubt, we should absolutely make this a national agenda".

Prema Varadhan, Cheif Architect and Head of AI at Temenos, discusses the future digitalisation of banking, particularly with regards to the potential of AI-related innovations, and we also take a closer look at the top 10 women in fintech. The latter includes several inspirational business leaders, such as CEO of YouTube, Susan Wojcicki, and Abigail Johnson, CEO of Fidelity Investments and the most powerful woman in finance, according to American Banker and Boston magazines. 

We also feature a closer look at a host of globally renowned and respected businesses, including Cover-More Group, Bank of New Zealand and Zurich Insurance. 

Take a closer look here.
