Arrow Down


Growing out of the 2007-2008 financial crisis, FinTech is changing the world — and we have only just scratched the surface. Innovation is breath-taking, bringing socioeconomic opportunities on an unprecedented scale.


The application of technology, digital opportunity, financial insight and imagination to new and emerging challenges, sees FinTech truly disrupt the status quo: from trading and investment, to personal finance, to banking the unbanked — and everything in between. FinTech has the power to reach and improve the lives of billions.

The right idea, at the right time, with the right expertise and the right leadership, means that the sky is the limit.


This playbook below outlines five key signposts that will point founders, their teams and their start-ups in the right direction as they accelerate and scale.

Royal Park Partners managing partner Aman Behzad has invited board adviser and global strategist Lana Tahirly  Abdullayeva join him in the creation of this five-point playbook – bringing fresh perspectives to the dynamic challenges and opportunities of FinTech. Together they provide 40 years of experience gained across four continents in both established and fast-growing markets. They combine the essential elements of Financial Services and technology and have helped to drive innovation and industry evolution for decades.
