The financial technology (“FinTech”) industry has exploded to the forefront of personal and commercial finance in the twenty first century.  More recently, the FinTech industry has been experiencing an enormous rise in investments and the continued surge in regulatory and technological advancement has been rapidly making the industry a complex environment to operate.
