BIS2022 – Digital Wallets: Upending Traditional Banking
Today, digital wallets like Venmo, Cash App, and others around the globe are penetrating traditional financial services, including brokerage and lending, thanks to what we believe are superior user experiences and much lower costs of acquisition.
Originally aired on January 25, Big Ideas Summit 2022 features in-depth presentations from ARK’s research team and seeks to educate attendees on the impact of breakthrough technologies and the investment opportunities they could create.
Change appears to happen slowly and then all at once. Over time, innovation should displace industry incumbents, increase efficiencies, and gain majority market share. With the right understanding of disruptive innovation and a long-term time horizon, we believe investors will capture exponential growth opportunities, which deserve a strategic allocation in their portfolios. For this reason, ARK focuses on opportunities likely to scale as technologies converge, transforming entire industries.
To enlighten investors on the impact of breakthrough technologies we began publishing Big Ideas in 2017. This annual research report seeks to highlight our most provocative research conclusions for the coming year. We hope you enjoy our Big Ideas for 2022.
