Happy New Year from all of us at FinTech Collective! Once again we are reaching out to you all (all 12,600 of you) to say a big thank you for reading and supporting our weekly labor of love (aka this newsletter). We wish you all a very healthy, happy and prosperous 2021!
During 2020 we shared over 1,600 fintech related news articles and created some of our own proprietary content. As we write everything ourselves, we enjoy the feedback loop of finding out the number of reads and clicks we get. So, as we have done in years past, we want to share some of that data and take a moment to reflect on some of the content you thought were the most notable. Enjoy reminiscing, and if you have friends or colleagues who will enjoy our weekly missive, please have them sign up here! Link
Oh! And we must not forget our most popular Gif of the year – which pretty much sums up 2020 in a nutshell.
