According to deVere Group, the financial advisory company, the use of financial apps in Europe has increased by 72% in a week due to social-distancing amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

A new era has already begun, with digitalization and new technologies driving the shift. This can be seen by demand soaring for video-calling platforms such as Google Hangouts, Skype, FaceTime and Zoom amongst others, as more people from ever work remotely

For instance, Zoom Video Communications gained more 32% in share since the market began its decline in mid-February.

Besides, the fintech apps enable immediate, 24/7 access to the use and management of their money. It means personalized, on-demand services at lower costs.

It is also expected that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the move towards fintech will be significantly accelerated. This way, deVere Group has launched its contactless advice service in responding to the coronavirus outbreak.
