  • Here are five fintechs from the Big Apple to watch.

Fintech is the newest and fastest way to process and deliver financial services. Whether you know it or not, you probably use some kind of fintech application right now, like Zelle or Venmo.

Fintech applications include payment apps like PayPal or Apple Pay, robo advisors and P2P, lending and investment apps and cryptocurrency. While fintech should not be confused with a lending institution like a traditional bank, most banks today use some form of fintech.

New York City is the financial market capital of the world, so it only stands to reason that it’s the fintech capital as well. The fintech market in NYC is exploding, and that includes fintech startups.

Fintech Deal Day Powered By Benzinga will be hosted Dec. 8, 2022 at the luxurious Pier Sixty in New York City. The dozens of fintech leaders appearing at Fintech Deal Day include Catherine Clay of Cboe Global Markets, Daniel Pipitone of TradeZero and Richmond Bassey of Bamboo. 

New York City Fintech Startups
