Does Financial Technology Adoption Influence Bank’s Financial Performance: The Case of Jordan
This research will examine the impact of the adoption of financial technology on conventional banks’ financial performances. The research will place emphasis on the listed commercial banks at Amman Stock Exchange—ASE, using financial data for the period 2012–2020. The main study tool was a questionnaire that focuses on three main dimensions: financial inclusion—(FI), alternative payment methods—(APMs) and automation—(Auto). A total of 115 questionnaires were distributed to all commercial banks listed at Amman Stock Exchange—ASE. Multivariate regression analysis was employed to test the impact of the FinTech dimension as a proxy for independent variables on Jordanian commercial bank’s financial performance as a proxy for dependent variables. Based on the analysis results, the study concludes that all three FinTech dimensions: FI, APMs and Auto. reflected a positive significant impact on Jordanian commercial bank’s financial performance indicators (total deposit, total loans and net profit margin). Therefore, banks in general should invest more and more into financial technology tools and applications, in order to recruit potential clients and retain their current clients, to be able to sustain under fierce competition within the banking sector.
