    DescriptionFintech (financial technology) is everywhere. It’s the catch-all term for technology-enabled financial services innovation.

    Even if you haven’t heard of fintech, you’re probably using it for payments, banking or investments. Klarna? ClearPay? Revolut? Monzo? They’re all part of an industry that attracted a staggering US$51.2 billion (£40.5 billion) of investment globally in 2023.

    However, while fintech is flooded with money, it is marked by an absence of women, particularly in leadership roles. Our research, which was published on March 5, reveals the striking underrepresentation of women guiding this booming industry.
