Will old world assets be the new world unicorns?
No matter if online payment provider Stripe, finance market place Lufax or credit provider Affirm – all of them have one thing in common: they are so-called FinTech Unicorns valued at over $1 billion. Are those Unicorns unleashing the potential of the traditional banking industry or is it actually the other way around? How does the new world affect the customer journey of the old asset? If and how existing business models of financial services providers in the mobility industry have to change - our CFO Stephan Unger and Professor Andreas Hackethal from the renowned Goethe University discussed that at this year’s IAA.
We want to stay on top of the competition.
