I have a keen interest in fine art. When Leonardo da Vinci did silverpoint drawings, graphite was not readily available at the time so many artists would draw with silver or gold. As more tools became available, diversity in art ballooned and now a key part of measuring an artists’ success is their ability to choose the right tools out a multitude of possibilities and make it work in the best way which allows them to achieve their goal.
Sounds a lot like what banks are trying to do with fintech right now. Banks need to find the best way to meet their strategic goals using the most appropriate tools available to them. It doesn’t always need to be fintech, but the rise of fintech makes it an alluring means.
