Working in FinTech, we’ve come to realise that the no. of women in the industry, although increasing, is still quite low. Did you know that only 12% of senior positions are held by women in FinTech? At Nethone, women are involved in all parts of our business, from development of our advanced fraud solution to its promotion. But this is not enough. We aim to highlight some of the women in key positions in Nethone with our ‘Women in FinTech’ series of blog posts, showing that experience and not gender is a key factor in gaining meaningful employment opportunities. FinTech can be part of the process to achieving gender equity.
Women in FinTech: the heart of Nethone’s advanced fraud solution
In this post, you will be able to easily read the profiles of Nethone’s women that have featured in our Women in FinTech series. Their experience shines through, and you can learn about how they have applied this knowledge to their roles and interactions with customers. Our series began with a look at the role of fraud fighting from the customer success perspective with Yael Abel Silberstein detailing how empathy and having a customer-centric approach can produce great results. This was followed by insight from Anna Sternicka about the process of developing Nethone’s advanced fraud solution. Our series is expanding, looking at women from various departments and geographies. Below you can find a snippet of what’s currently on offer via individual blog posts filled with the everyday details that go into fraud fighting.
We believe that the FinTech industry can help lead the way in achieving gender equality. And why are we so confident about this? Because FinTech already has a track record of social inclusion, as is clear in Brazil - the rise of e-Commerce, M-Commerce and digital banking have provided opportunities to people in society’s peripheral communities to gain access to the goods and services that were not previously available to them.
