FinTech--the rapid evolution of software-based financial services--is remaking Asia's banking industry, as in the rest of the world. The success of startups focused on innovations such as digital payment systems and peer-to-peer lending promises more value for individuals and businesses as financial services are delivered more efficiently, at lower cost and in a way that targets customers' specific needs.
