Over the past few months, LendIt Fintech and Latam Intersect PR worked on a new report on the state of the fintech market in Latin America. More than 300 fintech and banking professionals were consulted in preparing this report, providing unique insight into the market.

Here are some of the topics addressed:
Why investment dollars have been flooding into LatAm fintech.
The biggest opportunity for the LatAm fintech market.

How fintech can expand beyond banking.
The top concerns for both fintechs and banks.
