Silvio Tavares, CardLinx CEO writes in Benzinga about what 2017 will hold for fintech. An excerpt:
The election of Donald Trump and the impending Brexit have created new uncertainties around the fintech industry which was one of the best performing sectors in 2016. While Trump’s election has been great for financial stocks, especially bank stocks, it has not been so great for the other half of fintech, tech companies. To make things worse, the heart of European fintech, London, has promised to leave the European Union ASAP.
So in 2017, will the fintech industry perish or prosper? Surprisingly, the future for fintech looks quite bright.
