In this FinCap Friday we chronicle the epic battle being waged between the well-established banks and the upstart FinTech competitors. Once a blip on the radar for the big banks, several of these emerging companies have earned unicorn status and are valued privately at more than $1billion. Why? Blame mobile phones, the comfort level that younger generations have with conducting business (including banking) online and the FinTech focus on creating a great UX (user experience) on their apps. Find a pain point for bank customers (can you name a few?), solve it, rinse, repeat. Will big banks reign in a decade?
