Fintech Research Report 2021

In 2021, Isabel Group and Het CFO Centrum launched their online survey among Belgian companies to gauge their use of attitudes to and expectations from digitalization in general, and digitalization of their financial departments.
These questionnaires (1605 completed) were collected, analyzed and summarized into the Fintech Research Report 2021.

This report consists of three main chapters:

  1. The CEOs & CFOs of services and manufacturing companies views on financial digitalization. (n = 1500)
  2. The accountant’s point of view on financial digitalization. (n = 105)
  3. Specific attitudes towards Fintech of a subset of CFOs of companies with more than 50 employees. (n = 400)

The report clearly shows how companies, organizations and c-level are accomplishing and predicting the Fintech industry. The report can be downloaded for free!
