This interview with Accion Venture Lab’s Amee Parbhoo shares her views on investment trends and opportunities in emerging markets, such as embedded finance:
“I think the buzzword for fintech over the last year has been embedded finance. It’s so much broader than just a trend. The way we think about embedded finance is it really touches the ways financial services are provided to customers. And it cuts across trends in lending, insurance, savings, and investments. It creates opportunities for companies that are not financial institutions to provide financial offerings. But it also provides a customer who doesn’t have access through traditional means a way to more seamlessly access financial services. So we’re excited about companies like Kenya’s Lami, an embedded insurance provider in which we recently invested and Field Intelligence, a healthcare supply chain platform we backed in Nigeria and Kenya.”
