Top Fintech News | 09-15 March 2020

35+ Top Fintech News Globally from Top Fintech Influencers

Top fintech news daily from 9th to 15th March 2020 curated by the VisibleBanking.com team with the help of our global fintech community.

In this series, we are aiming to create the most relevant and insightful weekly fintech news with some of the best, most recent content worth sharing on social media.

We invite you to check our dedicated AI news.

The Challenge of Fintech News Curation

Unarguably, the biggest challenge on the likes of twitter is to cut through the noise.  Indeed, too many people, even some of my good friends recognised as top fintech influencers tend to share:

  1. the same articles several times (a good technique to maximise the visibility of your content)
  2. older articles (sometime outdated, usually still relevant)
  3. striking (highly shareable) infographics without sources

Consequently, it makes it rather challenging to flag the best, recent news and stories.

Top Fintech News: Methodology

We essentially spend most of our days scanning though the top articles on Google and monitoring the most relevant articles shared by the global fintech community on twitter and linkedin.

Last but not least, we proactively ask our fellow fintech influencers to recommend their top picks.
