Holland Fintech is presenting a monthly series of informational articles – Navigating The Fintech World – about the ever-changing world of fintech, delving deeper into a new topic each month! This month, read about the future of financial services – Open Banking!

Whether you are the CEO of a multibillion-dollar corporation or a student, your financial decisions will always revolve around two questions: how to make wise investments and accumulate wealth? Fortunately or unfortunately, the asset management and investing landscape has altered drastically in recent years as a result of the rise of fintech. Investors have more options and tactics than ever before to help develop a successful investment portfolio, from robo-advisors to blockchain-based assets. In this article, we’ll look at some of the most important trends and advances in asset management and investment, as well as how you might navigate this fast changing landscape to reach your financial goals.

Invest-tech leads towards a new path?

Invest-tech, a type of fintech that drives investment management innovation, has radically altered investing and asset management behaviors in recent years. Investors now have access to tools and platforms that were previously exclusively available to institutional investors, thanks to new technologies. The most well-known of these are robo-advisers, which employ algorithms or mathematical formulas to deliver digital financial advice. They rose to prominence in the mid-2010s, but encountered problems and setbacks along the way. As a result, numerous of these enterprises have shifted to a business-to-business (B2B) model, merged with larger corporations, or halted operations entirely. 

Despite this, Invest-techs have a bright future as investment managers seek creative solutions and funding continues to accelerate, and it is a terrific method to democratize investing and asset management, empowering individual investors to take charge of their financial futures.

Blockchain-based assets: a trend or a long-term investment? 

Blockchain-based assets have swept the economic world, with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum becoming household names. Is this a transitory fad, or should these assets be considered for long-term investment?

Blockchain technology’s potential applications extend far beyond digital money. Blockchain-based assets, with their capacity to form smart contracts and monitor asset ownership in a secure and decentralized manner, are opening up fascinating new investment prospects. However, because of the volatility and regulatory ambiguity surrounding these assets, investors should exercise caution. While blockchain-based assets are not for everyone, it is a great way to diversify your financial portfolio and tag along the long rough path for those who are prepared to take on the dangers and possible benefits.

What role does AI play in influencing investing habits?

Artificial intelligence is undeniably changing the way we invest and manage our assets. AI enables investors to make more educated decisions and earn higher returns by analyzing massive volumes of data and identifying trends. AI is used in a variety of investing tactics, from robo-advisors to algorithmic trading. However, AI is more than just automation; it also opens up new avenues for personalized investment recommendations and risk management. As artificial intelligence advances, it is expected to play an increasingly prominent role in the financial landscape. 

However, it is worth noting that the benefits of AI are accompanied by concerns about transparency and accountability. It is the responsibility of investors and industry leaders to ensure that AI is used safely and ethically in order to produce the best results for investors.
