Fintech Trends in South Africa

South Africa's financial services sector is internationally recognised as one of the most sophisticated. In the last decade, this has been complemented by a small but fast-growing fintech sector that is transforming financial services through digitisation, streamlining or disruption.

Accounting for 40% of all fintech revenue in Africa, South Africa has a relatively mature fintech market with a strong focus on development. Incumbents continue to dominate the financial sector, making it challenging for fintechs to achieve scale. This is further exacerbated by a risk-averse funding environment, a shortage of entrepreneurial skills and South Africa's complex regulatory environment.


Fintech can improve efficiency and reduce operating costs, allow seamless, real-time customer transactions, and drive hyper-personalisation. This can improve the efficiency of the financial sector and enhance the financial health of South Africans.

Fintech can solve payment, credit and remittance problems and provide accessible and appropriate financial products such as investments, savings and insurance at scale.


The largest and most mature subsector is payments, with 30% of companies operating in this space, most of them for more than five years. This is aligned to international fintech trends, where payment solutions dominate the fintech landscape.

Fintechs have been able to offer simpler and faster solutions than traditional banks. Increased access to the internet and the growth of ecommerce created the opportunity to facilitate and process digital payments.

As a result, a large majority of payment fintechs are third-party payment providers or payment services providers. These fintechs enable retailers to accept electronic payments via credit card, direct debit, bank transfer and real-time bank transfer.
