Technology is changing the way we manage our money. The financial technology (fintech) industry is growing at fast pace disrupting the financial sector. Together with the Hypovereinsbank, we would like to explore the possibilities for banking of the future. How will we be managing our bank accounts, credits and mortgages? How will we be sharing money with friends and relatives across the globe? How will we be paying our bills and shopping in the future? And how will content around financial issues be delivered to the users?
