Fintechs don’t need to be a competitor, but can also present an opportunity to augment their capability and customer offerings via partnerships more rapidly than is possible internally.  There are, however, often some challenges in fintech collaborations and often these arrangements can fail.  We’ll explore what it takes to engineer a successful collaboration and some of the common pitfalls to avoid.

Software is eating the world. Every company is becoming a software company, and that’s particularly true for super funds.
