Abstract: This study aims to examine the influence of knowledge management process on Fintech innovation through the moderating role of managers' demographic characteristics (age, sex, education, experience, and position) in commercial banks operating in Lebanon.

The findings also provide support for the moderating effect of only two demographic characteristics of bank managers: experience and position on the relationship between knowledge management and Fintech innovation in commercial banks in Lebanon.
