2020 Fintech Survey

As the digital transformation of financial markets accelerates at breakneck speeds, fintech presents significant opportunities and challenges for both investors and innovators around the world.

When we began the research for Goodwin’s inaugural survey on the financial technology industry, our goal was to shed light on the most critical issues facing this vibrant sector at the intersection of capital and innovation. Since that time, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a unique set of circumstances with the potential to dramatically increase the pace of innovation and significantly alter the corporate landscape. Because of these recent events, we believe it has become increasingly important to not only understand the current state of the financial technology market, but to also have insights and analysis into the many forces shaping its future.
