FinTech takes a closer look at one of the top fintechs to watch in 2020: TORANOTEC. 

 

TORANOTEC is one of KPMG’s emerging fintechs to watch. Launched in 2017, the company is an asset management group that aims to provide an accessible entry point into the investment industry. The application leverages cash, loyalty points, airline miles and more to creating investments that can be used to “bridge” between financial services and sectors such as retail, telecoms, entertainment and more. Headquartered in Tokyo, TORANOTEC functions in Asian markets and its website is predominantly in Japanese. In an article from Forbes, TORANOTEC is featured to discuss the new era of business in Japan.
