FinTech and Financial Innovation : Drivers and Depth

This paper answers two questions that help those analyzing FinTech understand its origins, growth, and potential to affect financial stability.

In the previous posts in this series on the evolution of banks and financial intermediaries, my colleagues and I considered the extent to which banks still play a central role in financial intermediation, given the rise of the shadow banking system. There’s no arguing that financial intermediation has grown in complexity.
