Financial sector

The financial sector is a system within an economy that helps regulate the redistribution of capital, allocating it to projects most relevant for the market . The general trend in the new economy is the reducing number of human intermediaries, which are being replaced by automated systems. For this reason, many jobs in the sector (such as accountant or clerk) are becoming endangered and will eventually disappear in the coming years.
Nevertheless, the financial sphere may offer leeway for creativity and original thinking in matters related to funding large-scale or innovative projects, risk insurance, development of new tools for retirement savings, etc. In addition, the Internet is giving birth to new financing tools, such as crowd funding and crowd investing . New, digital code-based currencies (cryptocurrencies) are appearing, with other interesting processes underway.
