Disruptions: Most Innovative Financial Initiatives and Projects in 2020

2020 has been a year of changes, adversities, learning … and many projects. Faced with lockdowns, the closure of physical stores, the economic crisis, unemployment and other complexities caused by the pandemic, both the banking sector and the fintech sector created many solutions in order to improve the scenario.

At iupana we have seen a vast number of digital financial projects that have allowed the economic reactivation of the region: digitization of payments for SMEs, personalized credits, digital channels of access to state subsidies, and much more.

These awards recognize the most innovative financial services projects in Latin America in 2020: new products or services launched by banks and fintechs, internal transformation projects and new business models will be valued in this category. We consider projects from all financial sectors, such as banking, payments, credits, insurance, investments, etc.

In making our assessment, we will take into account:
