The Search, Global Tour: South America
In South America, The Search uncovers the effect of the fintech boom on this wide-reaching and developing continent. When it comes to fintech, there are many similiarities with the African continent including a large population (650+m) many of whom are unbanked, increasing mobile-phone ownership and a tech-savvy younger generation. All this has opened an incredible window of opportunity for fintech startups to serve the needs of existing customers and fulfil the requirements of a new audience.
Luiz Simione, President & Chief Revenue Officer of DrumWave shares key highlights of the South American fintech ecosystem. We take a look at the world’s largest neobank (based in Brazil), discover why Latin American banks are some of the most profitable in the world and uncover the opportunities for fintech offered in the region. Plus, meet inspirational startups who introduce their technology and pitch for the chance to participate in this November’s Fintech100.
