Fintech Almanac for ’17

Note from the CEO:  WOW! This is really cool. A #Fintech Almanac broken down by each month. Predications that are specific and not just all fluff. Gotta read it and it has really icons too. Nice.

This article is really too awesome to try and paraphrase. Hats off the author, the great monthly observations and icons.


It’s that time of year again! Our news feeds are filled with articles and blogs predicting the year ahead. But if there’s one thing I enjoy more than reading everyone’s predictions for 2017, it’s going back to December 2015 and reading everyone’s predictions for 2016 to see how they’ve done! 😉 As you’d expect, accuracy of prediction is inversely proportional to level of detail. In my book, you get few marks for simply taking an existing trend and extrapolating it a bit. “Blockchain is gonna be big next year”, “Banks will work more with fintech startups”, “We’ll see more Insurtech”. YAWN! ?

So here’s my go at calling 2017. Instead of those wishy-washy generic predictions let’s go super-specific…
