If you find yourself picking up your phone more than your wallet, you’re already part of the fintech movement. From apps to digital banks, new developments in tech and finance are leading to major disruptions in how we spend and manage our money.

What once started as a term to define the tech startups coming to disrupt the big banks after the global financial crisis (GFC) has now changed to include the banks it came to disrupt. From banking and investing to insurance and loans, this is your beginner's guide to the world of fintech.

On this episode, we welcome Elizabeth Barry, Finder's global fintech editor!
