Established in 2016, The Fintech Times is a multimedia news outlet centred around our print newspaper (the FIRST and ONLY Fintech newspaper) chronicling the latest developments in cutting-edge financial technologies including payments innovation, RegTech, banking transformation, AI, cryptocurrencies, WealthTech, Cybersecurity,  Insurtech and many more. 

Fintech needs an authoritative voice that gives our industry exposure and integrity.

We are building that voice over the years together with the main players in finance, international thought leaders and global Fintech firms, with the support of our 120,000+ online readers and over 150,000+ copies of the print newspaper circulated in London, San Francisco and Tokyo. 

Our mission is clear and simple – to make Fintech understood and celebrated.

Let’s take fintech mainstream! 🙂
