About this blog
Honest. Constructive. Objective. No Bull
There is an irony about the company I am working for. FinTech is this bright and shiny word that everyone has been focusing on for the past couple of years, yet it has been the stuff that our bread and butter has been made of for the past 21 years.
‘Finance & Technology Research Centre (F&TRC)’, was founded in 1995 and has been analysing the relationship between financial services and technology ever since.
Yes, FinTech is an actual THING (a global phenomenon) and not just an abbreviation for the name of my employer.
the Founder of F&TRC, Ian McKenna, is one of the UK's loudest, influential and highly revered FinTech commentators.
Ian has given me the green light to come out from under my keyboard and provide you with my personal anecdotes on ‘My week in WealthTech’.
(No our company is not changing it’s name to ‘Wealth & Technology Research Centre').
The team at F&TRC are currently launching www.digitalwealthinsights.com. Apart from doing what it says on the tin, we aim to provide our audience with objective comparisons of automated financial service solutions in the UK and globally, alongside our informed analysis. We also comment on industry trends, lessons learnt and highlight any leading edge functionality we deem a cut above the rest.
I aim to share with you some behind the scenes informal insights into our analysis. I’ll include some insider tidbits, in-house views and anything exciting that I think might float the FinTech boat.
See www.digitalwealthinsights.com/blogs to follow our official insight and formal analysis of automated financial services in the UK.
