About Plutus

- Nearly 50% of banks do not upgrade old IT systems as soon as they should, and 43% of US banks still use COBOL, a programming language dating from 1959 ...and extra layers embedded on top of it are causing outage- - UK FCA in its annual report

- In other words, banking systems are outdated and cannot be easily modernized.

- Fintech have responded enthusiastically to address this problem and in India alone there are over 2,000 fintechs and neo banks currently.
