A Capterra study showed that 94% of the companies that use embedded finance report an increase in their earnings. However, what are the advantages that make the embedded finance something truly possible? Here are some of them:
By using embedded finance, companies avoid the costs and hassles of building and maintaining their own financial infrastructure. This can save them a lot of money and help them avoid the complexities of complying with the regulations of countries where they operate.
A platform that offers diverse financial solutions, such as insurance, financing, bank accounts and multiple and accessible payment methods is more attractive to customers than a platform that does not offer these options. Customers prefer purchasing from companies that already have all they need in one place, which saves time and effort; it could also increase the purchasing power of customers, which could increase sales conversions.
Traditional payment processing is fragmented and expensive. A Fintech Magazine survey shows that 70% of payments and treasury leaders from different companies believe this to be the reason behind many cash flow problems.
Embedded finance solutions offer companies a way to integrate payment processing and financing into all their operations, which could provide a better view and control of cash flows while also helping to reduce costs and time.
The financial market has transformed rapidly in recent years, driven by the emergence of new financial service providers and technological advances (which are other factors that will be discussed here). This transformation has demanded an evolution of market regulations to guarantee protection and greater autonomy for consumers and the stability of the financial system.
This is the underlying concept of Open Banking, with the term now extended to Open Finance, as it includes diverse sectors of this ecosystem. It refers to the sharing of data among institutions via API to offer tailored offerings and other types of customization that optimize the customer journey. The system is constantly evolving and has tremendous potential, though there exist regulatory challenges in several countries for its large-scale deployment.
The emergence of companies specializing in finance and technology has revolutionized the industry as these offer financial services in a way that could not have been imagined earlier, and are driving competition across the market. In fact, many traditional financial institutions have been forced to adjust their practices and adopt the technology to be able to reach an audience that is in need of increasingly accessible and modern options.
Technological advances have facilitated the offering of financial services. Now, companies from diverse sectors can offer financial products to their customers without having to invest large amounts of time and money. This has democratized access to these services and made them available to a broader audience.
