Why FinTech Rising?

FinTech Rising is a respected blog and email that provides context to media coverage of financial technology and the future of money. Edited by Collin Canright, FTR helps financial professionals understand the business uses and investment landscape in all sectors of the FinTech ecosystem.

As financial services and banking converge with internetworked, mobile, and massively databased systems, financial technology (FinTech) has exploded. The tools developed by innovative FinTech firms are empowering individuals to gain greater control over their financial destinies and enabling smaller, incumbent financial institutions to compete with large global institutions and technology firms.

We cover the payments, lending, capital markets, and wealth management segments of FinTech, with a focus on banking and emphasis on the emerging digital economy. We aim to provide a pragmatic approach to help financial professionals understand the digital transformation of the financial services industry.
