After 43 years working in one of Japan’s leading banks, 81-year-old Masako Wakamiya has launched an iPhone app called "Hinadan" that shows users how to stage traditional dolls for the Hinamatsuri festival.
That Wakamiya was able to move from the financial sector and being able to create an application after just over 20 years of experience in technology shows how malleable and adaptable finance is.
Alongside this, it also shows how those working in the traditional sector could potentially embrace technology in the form of fintech.
As reported in The Next Web, Wakamiya spoke about the process of active aging in the digital landscape at TEDx in Toky, Dailymail reported.
While this is an extreme example of a break in the typical age range in today’s technology industry, it does signal that sectors like fintech has the capability of becoming accessible to Generation X and Y, and not just millennials.
