The global financial sector is undergoing irreversible changes due to the significant impact of digital technologies, including FinTech. In this regard, the current conditions of the financial services market of Ukraine require the search for non-traditional forms of innovative development and the need to implement information systems and digital technologies. This is in line with the provisions of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, the Comprehensive Program for the Development of the Financial Sector of Ukraine until 2020, the Strategy for the Development of the Financial Sector and Fintech in Ukraine until 2025.
The article analyses and summarizes various scientific approaches to the definition of FinTech. Features and tendencies of FinTech development in different countries of the world are investigated. It is revealed that at present in the financial sector there is a partial displacement of traditional intermediaries by new participants, automated processes and information networks. Increasing competition requires traditional financial institutions to apply new digital technologies, improve financial products, change business models and reduce operating costs. It is established that FinTech is able to solve the current problems of the financial services market. As a result, the current regulatory framework for regulating the development of the financial services market should be changed to prevent uncontrolled situations in the financial system due to the increasing impact of financial and operational risks.
