About the book

Fintech is at the core of the business and is now utilized to assist businesses and business owners alike. Financial Technology or Fintech has revolutionized the way the world works today. It has created the most sought after disruption in Global Finance. With the rise in Fintech Hubs, Bank Techs, and Tech Giants, the businesses are a far cry from what it used to be only a decade ago. This has given rise to entrepreneurs who have alternative financing solutions thus impacting the industry. Some of the core flavors of Fintech include peer-to-peer lending, crowdfunding, bitcoins and alternative coins using blockchain technology, robo advising, regulation techs, insurance techs, and advanced payment mechanisms.

This book will discuss the different aspects of the topic. Chapters are welcomed on topics covering the role of Fintech in Cryptos and Blockchains, Goal Based Investing, Fintech Solutions, Digital Financial Advisor, FinTech Ecosystem and Innovation, Regtechs and the Future of FinTech. This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview featuring the latest used cases and its impact on socio-economic development in this critically important transition towards the digital economy.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Edi Lipovic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
