"Technology is Eating Finance"

The Fintech revolution has drastically changed the world of Finance. The job market is no longer what it used to be.

Technology is eating Finance. It is estimated that 80% of the jobs in Fintech are those of Tech companies. Digital skills, knowledge of technological trends such as Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, or familiarity with industry trends such as ESG or CBDC are imperative for the growth of the Finance ecosystem in every country.
