An overview: Opportunities, challenges and success stories in the Mexican Fintech ecosystem

Mexico is the 16th largest economy worldwide (in nominal terms) and the 10th largest by purchasing power parity. The majority of its population is young and dynamic. Opportunities for international companies are hard to ignore and are palpable in many sectors. FinTech included.

FinTech is an emerging industry in which companies use technology to provide financial services efficiently and reliably. FinTech companies offer a wide range of financial services and operate within several markets, providing both individuals and businesses with services and solutions. Changes continue to occur in the Mexican financial ecosystem, and they are happening faster and faster. Only the percentage of Mexicans with a formal savings account has grown from 19% to 42% in the last five years. During the current pandemic, digital transactions increased by 448%, and experts are sure this type of digital activity is here to stay beyond COVID19.

Join us and listen to Lizette Neme, Fintech Law specialist and former Chief Legal Advisor at the Mexican Ministry of Finance, Alehira Orozco, Head of Government Affairs for Mercado Libre and Rodrigo Sánchez LATAM Regulatory Counsel for Stripe, discuss the possibilities that the future can bring for people and companies who want to enter the Mexican Fintech Sector.

 The Chatham House Rule will be enforced and the event will be conducted in English.
