Social media is another decent bet. One however, needs to stay clear of a lot of illegal activity that is taking place surrounding bitcoins. Fintech does not always help the unbanked either, though it has made an impact in some markets. An upcoming field of investment here is in robo- advisers.

Seattle-based Envestnet Tamarac is one of the leading players in the adviser technology market. One of the reasons for the company’s swift growth has been that it delivers what is quoted. Tamarac ended up doing better post the 2008 market crash. The merger of Tamarac with Envestnet took place later but as per the agreement the latter did not interfere in the former’s independence.
