Happy Thursday, Fellow Fintechers!

Today we have a great lineup of fintech and wealthtech news for you. We start with our Wealthtech Weekly feature, synopsizing the latest news in the sector this past week, plus an in-depth look at wealthtech Ycharts, and their cloud-based offerings for wealth managers. We also report on a new cybersecurity offering from Chalice Financial Network and hear from Robert Sofia of SnappyKraken in our 3 Questions series.  Next up is a review of the Swedish payments firm Klarna, which has recently closed on nearly $500M USD in fresh new capital to further penetrate the US market (and has Snoop Dogg as an investor and spokesperson, to boot).   The latest investment round makes it the largest private fintech by market cap in Europe. We also have word that, ONCE AGAIN, the SEC has delayed a decision on Bitcoin ETFs.  And finally, we take a look at China’s recent announcement that its Central Bank is about to launch a digital currency of its own. 


Fintech, as we have often said, must be followed internationally—and across multiple sectors—in order to understand the enormity of the category and the investment implications and opportunities for advisors and their clients.  Read up!



Very Best,

Cindy Taylor
