The financial services sector in Ireland is undergoing significant change driven by digitalisation and advances in technology.
These converging technology and financial sectors or "FinTech" bring exciting new opportunities for financial institutions: both externally in the development of new products and services offering seamless customer experience and internally in the improvement of existing technologies relied on. The FinTech revolution also brings new opportunities for FinTech focused technology providers.
