Internet of things (IoT) has deeply penetrated our society, and in day to day activities, the impact of IoT is inescapable. Swift digitalization of banking and finance sectors paved the way for the introduction of IoT in leveraging services associated with financial economics and accounting. The big data generated by a diverse set of IoTs enable the introduction of machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) modules which aid in making remarkable improvements in financial sectors.

IoT-generated big data improves the security in financial transactions by detecting the anomalies in banking activities by combining biometrics and cryptography in data analytics that remarkably reduces the fraudulent activities to several folds. The adoption of ML modules in big data of banking services gave intelligent decisions in the risk-free making of accurate budgets and payments. Also, the integration of IoT data analytics in insurance and mortgage efficiently manages the assets and reduces the risk level to several folds. In addition, prescriptive analytics of bank services aid in determining potential leads for expansion of business and financial opportunities. Also, IoT data greatly helps offer a more personalized experience of monetary economics and accounting. Thus IoT enabled data analytics are a paradigm shift in the financial sector.

The ubiquitous presence of IoT in the financial sector transforms their performance to next-generation banking. However, potential challenges and pitfalls need to be addressed before global adoption and recommendation.  Primarily, the high connectivity of the IoT opens potential opportunities for hacking and misuse, which needs to be addressed. Most of the IoTs are manufactured by companies that do not directly involve financial sectors and provide poor services in many cases that need improvements. Secure storing IoT-generated big data is still inadequate, which needs research advances. The reliability of models generated by IoT-derived data requires careful reassessment. Additionally, potential vulnerabilities in using IoT need to be addressed.  However, IoT data analytics would be a productive tool in enhancing financial economics and accounting on substantial improvement. Moreover, IoT-enabled data analytics further explore previously unknown new opportunities in the financial sector, which would be disruptive.

Therefore this special issue aims to discuss and highlight financial services, banking, mortgage, mutual funds, money transfer, data analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, security, and privacy issues. We invite researchers from various fields to present their research work, review, and perspectives in IoT Data Analytics for Financial Economics and Accounting.
