Exploring Digital Twin Use Cases in "Fin Twins," With an Eye Toward More Efficient Operations

Financial Technology, or FinTech, cuts across all industries, products, services, people, and things. It is already transforming how the flow of value, payments, ownership, information, risk, access control and managed settlements are distributed across current and evolving technologies.

While digital twin use cases are mostly developed from an operational performance perspective and for a specific domain or vertical, FinTech trends towards intangibles. FinTech digital twins work on domain-agnostic levels. The Digital Twin Consortium Financial Technology Working Group faces the challenge of turning these intangibles into tangibles.

The Working Group is dedicated to shaping this emerging sub-industry by publishing opinions and position statements relating to regulations, policies and definitions. The Group is increasing the visibility of DTC’s role in the FinTech ecosystem through use cases, success stories, and position papers. It is focused on the launch and appraisal of Value Innovation Platforms, identification of gaps in standards and standards requirements, and reference implementations for digital twins.
