Financial Term FAQs
What is Embedded Finance?
Embedded finance is a term used to describe the integration of financial services into products or services, sometimes even non-financial products. In the case of embedded finance, the financial services are "embedded" within another application, making them easily accessible and convenient for the customer.
Overall, embedded finance represents a shift towards a more integrated and seamless approach to providing financial services, and is likely to become increasingly common as technology continues to advance.
What is FinTech Infrastructure-as-a-Service?
Fintech infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) refers to the use of cloud-based technology to provide financial institutions with the infrastructure they need to deliver financial services.
Fintech IaaS providers are often used as an alternative to building and maintaining in-house infrastructure, which can be expensive and time-consuming. By using cloud-based IaaS, financial institutions can quickly and easily access the technology resources they need, without having to invest in building and maintaining their own infrastructure, like a backend as a service. This can help them to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and focus on their core competencies.
What is Open Banking?
Open Banking enables the sharing of data and the use of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to allow third-party developers to build new financial products and services on top of existing banking infrastructure, with portability of banking data.
This means that consumers and businesses can access a wide range of financial services through a variety of different applications and platforms. For example, a customer might be able to view their bank account information and make payments through a personal finance management app, or a small business might be able to apply for a loan through an online marketplace.
What is Banking as a Service?
Banking as a service (BaaS) involves providing financial institutions with the backend infrastructure and capabilities they need to offer financial services to their customers. This can include access to payment processing, account management, and other core banking functions such as card issuance.
