Some 55% of respondents of the survey, carried out by IFA network deVere Group, affirmed that they “regularly use financial technology to access and manage their money”.
The survey polled 883 people from the UK, Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America and Australasia.
Of the findings, Nigel Green, deVere Group founder and CEO, said: “Even two or three years ago, that figure would have been significantly lower.
“The fact that today 55% of people polled globally use fintech solutions on a regular basis highlights the staggering rate of the digitalisation of our everyday lives.
“And it is speeding up.
“From self-driving cars, genetic bio-editing to AI, new technologies are beginning to impact every part of our lives.
“Our financial lives are no exception.
“We’re in a new age.”
He added: “Fintech firms are filling the void left between what traditional financial services companies are offering and what customers are now expecting, especially in terms of customer experience.
“In broad terms, this means immediate, on-the-go, 24/7 access to, use and management of their money.
“It means personalised, on-demand services.
“It means lower costs.
“Fintech is already a major disruptive presence in the financial services marketplace.
“This trend is only set to grow as ‘digital natives’ - the first generation that grew up with the internet and smart devices – become ever more dominant in the workforce and in social and political roles.”
According to the data collected by deVere, emerging markets in Asia, Latin America and Africa are becoming the biggest growth areas for participation.
The results also revealed around two thirds (67%) of those polled used fintech apps to send remittances and money transfers.
Some 46% use financial technology vehicles to track investments and/or accounts and 28% use them for storing and managing cryptocurrencies.
Mr Green added: “The poll underscores that fintech is the new normal.”
