Fintech Becomes Far Easier With Intuitive Software
A wave of startups are making financial technology easier for the layperson. In the beginning, we had to grapple with often archaic and cryptic financial software on phones that, although relieved us from cumbersome paperwork, required too much technical knowledge to use. Now, we are seeing an influx of financial disrupters, in the forms of small, nimble companies, that are improving the quality of financial services through smartphones. And not just in technical ways these days, but with more intuitive and less burdensome user experiences.
Fintech has increasingly become one of the up and coming segments to look out for in 2015, as even financial magnates are taking to the smartphone space to help manage their financial portfolios. To note, banks are already on the move to integrate technology in financial services, and although they are still working to scale and integrate fintech products as quickly and efficiently as startups, this means fintech is indeed growing in global importance.

Its in-built graphs, which are color-coded unlike in most early Fintech software, which makes it easy to compare returns to an index or understand a portfolio’s asset allocation.
