The emergence of FinTech has come under the spotlight over the past decade, attracting the interest of policymakers and regulators surrounding the financial services arena, and even of the general population. At the early stages of this development, a variety of anecdotal sources referred to this FinTech “revolution” as the disrupting factor of financial intermediaries. This chapter provides a discussion of how the three main product sectors of FinTech are so far seen interacting—or potentially disrupting in the near future—key segments of financial intermediaries, as well as an overview of FinTech regulation and financial stability aspects.
