‘Fintech’ is a portmanteau of the words “financial” and “technology” and refers to companies, primarily start-ups, dealing with how financial services can be digitised. Their aim is to apply technological solutions to existing approaches and thus to change, simplify, and improve the world of finance. As the categorisation above makes clear, companies in Hamburg are doing this in a variety of ways.
