A roundup of interesting predictions for fintech in 2018

It’s that time of year when financial experts far and wide reveal their predictions for the coming year, and 2018 is no exception. Without further ado, here are some of the interesting articles we’ve found so far.

On the BankNXT website, Phil Siarri predicts “extreme fluctuations” when it comes to cryptocurrencies, further collaboration among financial regulators, and “the productisation of blockchain”. Fasten your seatbelts, he says – “2018 may well be a year packed with fintech innovation, and possible turbulence along the way”.

Henri Arslanian writes his ‘10 Fintech Predictions for 2018‘ on the LTP website, covering bitcoin and cryptocurrencies (this is going to be this year’s hot topic, we think), ICOs, regtech, open banking, voice technology and cybersecurity.

In Forbes, Madhvi Mavadiya explores ‘What 2017 means for fintech in 2018‘. Topics include artificial intelligence, Brexit, blockchain and, yes, you guessed it … cryptocurrency.

11FS makes some bold and interesting predictions for 2018 in its article called simply ‘Our 2018 predictions‘. They keep things nice and simple at 11FS, but their analysis is thorough and spot-on. This article covers open banking, PSD2, a frank and amusing quote from Sam Maule about the American outlook, and much, much more.

Finally, our friend at The Financial Brand, Jim Marous, outlines ‘5 Resolutions for Digital Banking Success in 2018‘. These include the most important resolutions organisations need to consider, such as data analytics, customer engagement, and distribution models.

And back in November, he published an excellent piece called ‘What’s Next? Predictions For The Banking Industry In 2018‘. You can’t go far wrong.
