The global financial crisis of 2008 led to a huge wave of innovation with technology in finance. Will the pandemic do the same? I think it will.

That means that 2020 may be awful, but here’s to 2021 through 2029 when we see more technology innovation in finance than we’ve ever seen before. Here’s to next year.
