Mara Villegas has been in the banking sector since 2008 and is currently the Director for Compliance of a financial investment company.

In this episode, we discuss how COVID-19 has accelerated the world of the digital finance industry today and the expected market growth.

We talked about how effective and relevant such services have become over the course of two years.

Maybe the awareness of electric vehicles and surge in renewable energy investment will be next.
