With the highest fintech adoption rates in the world, fintech in India has entered a new era. The promising Indian fintech market is expected to reach $1 trillion in throughput and $200 billion in revenue by 2030 according to a report by EY and Chirate Ventures.
Fintech is also one of the most data-intensive sectors. Its growth is being powered by two dimensions of data – the availability of affordable data plans and the large sets of customer data in the country. Every day, market data, transaction data, customer data, and reference data inform critical investing, trading and risk decisions. All within an ever-changing landscape of inflationary pressures, market volatility and regulatory demands.
Data strategies and emerging tools for efficiencies at scale
Fintech in rapid-scale mode may have started on their data journeys but often struggle to break through the hype and fit the disparate parts of the data puzzle together to deliver the digital success they hoped for.
For many fintech players, siloed records and technology architectures can be cumbersome. Along with competing data models, security, and governance challenges, this can limit the data’s full potential.
To help fintech players better understand the nuances of data and explore how growth mode scale-ups can improve their data posture and leverage modern and emerging tools for efficiencies at scale, YourStory is hosting a specially curated closed-door roundtable on December 9, 2022 in Bengaluru, together with Snowflake and Quantiphi.
A wealth of fintech and data thought leaders
The roundtable will bring together industry thought leaders to deliberate on the Data Cloud and how to extract untapped value from data. It hopes to table key areas of impact for fintech scale-ups including the data economy and what it means in the context of fintech players, evaluating data postures, creating a data culture, developer-friendly data strategies, fintech data playbooks, data and Bharat, emerging data innovations, monetizing data, and more.
