5 Fintech Newsletters You Need To Follow Now

2 min readMay 19, 2021


Perhaps it is just us but there is a significant overload of information in fintech. It is often very hard to separate the good from the not so great at first glance and the pure volume of content readily available for consumption is overbearing.

This is why we have decided to compile a list of our favorite fintech newsletters that we regularly follow (and even open when they arrive in our mailbox).

When carefully narrowed down to a few; newsletters in are a a great way to receive high quality content. They are delivered in your email and usually follow a regular routine (often circulated during off-days such as Sundays); removing the barrier to consume more thoughtful and long-form content.

Without further ado then, these are the top 5 fintech newsletters we are reading on regular basis these days:

1 Fintech BrainFood
