French payment fintechs alone account for almost a third of the total funds raised (736 million euros) by the French ecosystem in 2020. Among the 10 largest financial institutions in the world, 5 are now payment players: Visa, Mastercard, Ant Financial, Tencent and Paypal.
The payment sector benefits from several factors: on the one hand, the specificity of the sector, which attracts the historical banking players because it is a business in full mutation, which is becoming much more automated and for which opportunities are numerous. Since banks no longer make money on savings and loans, it is by innovating on payment solutions, to attract the capture of flows, that the war is the most crucial. But you can't capture money if you're not digital and don't have a super-app, especially in a post-2020 context of global containment that has accelerated the digitalization of uses for individual customers as well as for VSEs/SMEs.
COVID-19 taught us that the line between success and failure is thinner than ever and relies on identifying (and anticipating) challenges and finding solutions faster than ever : what will be tomorrow's successes in PAYTECH? on what terrain will the war be fought?
It is in this perspective that LA PLACE FINTECH organized in June 2021 at the Palais Brongniart the largest French and European paytech 2021 gathering over 2 days. This event was a unique moment to meet these actors as well as the ecosystem gravitating around banks, Banking as a service, aggregation solutions, platforms, KYC solutions, etc.
