September 21, 2016
These are exciting times for financial services. On one hand, several FinTech startups are providing solutions for specific problems and on the other, incumbents are bringing more digitization and tech-enabled products to their existing customers. The ongoing debate between banks and FinTechs at war is also giving way to collaboration, partnership and acquisition.
We at LTP are happy to announce the top FinTech influencers in the United States of America (USA). These influencers are people that are bringing about the change we need in the financial services space. This list is not restricted to new disruptors and not just the big boys at incumbents.
The FinTech influencers list is based on both thinkers and doers in the FinTech and FinServ space. It includes startup founders/CXOs, bankers, technologists, industry experts/advisors, regulators and people who run associations and industry bodies.
