Financial Technology


Financial tech has been a great venture for business in the modern world. Angel investors are the greatest beneficiaries of this tech. This piece of tech stands as the stiff competitor of traditional financial methods in offering financial services and assistance. According to a research conducted a few months ago, a significant number of graduates run for jobs in the banking industry. However, there are others who take a different approach and venture on talents to cultivate startups.

Evidence has it that university and college dropouts have founded some of the most successful business magnates. Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg are some of the people who quit learning to develop their start-ups. As stated by the Financial Times, there is a substantial number who focus on advancing their fundamental financial acquaintance.

Maximilian Voigt, the co-founder Gründermaschine, is an excellent example of the graduates above. Gründermaschine is based in Frankfurt, Germany is a ground for startups in financial tech ventures. It was after this founding that Voigt enrolled for admission at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School to undertake Master’s Degree in Financial Economics. Voigt has in the past been an employee for an Information Technology consultancy firm, Talentschmiede. Consistent with the Financial Times post, the IT firm backed two-thirds of his schooling costs.

Voigt echoed that most of the Masters in Finance graduates were more into Fintech, but discouragement came from the risks involved. One of the hindrances to many graduates during his time is that most of them opted for employment in banks and were unable them to pay their debts. Personally, Voigt didn’t have financial worries as his learning was funded. With the current global growth in tech and firms operations, fintech is a good venture ground for finance investors.

According to Yvon Moysan, modern banking requires skilled people in Fintech. Yvon is a lecturer in Digital Marketing in Finance at Lille’s IESEG School of Management. Nonetheless, Yvon says that most of the twenty-five students undertaking this course opt employment in giant banks. Before joining the London Business School (LBS), Arzish Baaquie was an employee in a Fintech firm where he applied skills that he had acquired while at Smartkarma, Singapore. The institution provided venture awareness into Asian asset supervision markets.

Smartkarma founders supported Arzish’s education. After his achievements, they sent him to launch Smartkarma branch in the UK. Unlike many students who are on and off jobs in fintech investments, Arzish has decided to stick in this line of business. David Morris, a tech industry enrolment overseer at LBS says that Arzish as an exclusion in spite of London’s reputation as a center for fintech businesses.
