The first three months of 2016 has already seen a 75% rise in fintech investment in comparison to last year, according to our friends over at Pivotl. And after the 71% rise in investment from 2014 to 2015, we can only expect this number to grow, especially in the payments sector with the predicted value of digital payments to be processed this year being $3.6 trillion. Take a look at our infographic below to find out more about what the future of fintech holds.
