Fremont, CA: The financial industry is recognizing the benefits of the Internet of Things (IoT) as it is designed to make life easier. Fintech companies generally question the economic practicality of IoT projects integrated into the banking and finance industry. This is an understandable concern as investments need counting and ensuring that the project is worth it. 

However, IoT has its benefits no matter the location or scale of the financial ventures. Here are five promising uses of IoT in the financial sector:
