Fintech Studios & Symphony Partner

Note from the Publisher:  In fintech (and tech in general for that matter), it’s critically important to simplify messaging as much as possible, but it’s not always easy to do with complex topics and offerings.  The following looks like a great collaboration, it just took us over half an hour to understand the value proposition and attempt to distill the content for our readers, and ultimately we gave up and decided to run the press release mostly verbatim instead.  Ultimately, we think this is a great offering – the devil will be in the detail of crafting an understandable marketing message that potential customers will then want to act upon.

FinTech Studios has announced a partnership with Symphony Communications, which has raised over $170M to date from the likes of  Bank of America Merrill Lynch, BlackRock, BNY Mellon, Citadel, Citi, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Google Inc., Goldman Sachs, HSBC, J.P. Morgan, Jefferies, Lakestar, Maverick, Merus Capital, Morgan Stanley, Natixis, Nomura, Societe Generale, UBS and Wells Fargo.
