Mary Meeker Publishes Annual Internet Trends Report

Famed venture capitalist Mary Meeker is out with her annual intervened trends report which is seen a required reading for tech investors; the report covers internet trends more broadly but it does point to a few fintech related areas that are worth mentioning; more than half the human population is online and that number will only keep growing; public and private investments into technology companies surpassed $200bn in 2018; e-commerce and ride-share digital payments are on the rise; privacy concerns are still quite high but they seem to be moderating a bit; China now makes up more than 21 percent of internet users with the U.S. coming in at 8 percent.
