Tech firms have the capabilities necessary to reorder global
commerce into ecosystems in which they provide a variety of financial products and services through a single gateway portal. Through a range of partnerships and acquisitions, banks have spent years preparing for, and to an extent fending off, competition from these small, nimble technology start-ups by using some of their innovations.
