Banking Technology April 2021 issue out now
Soaring to new heights
The latest edition of our flagship magazine – Banking Technology – is out now, packed with news, analysis and insights, case studies, research and expert commentary.
A note from our editor, Sharon Kimathi:
This month’s Banking Technology magazine focuses on the growth of global mergers and acquisitions (M&A) as the first quarter of the year sees a 94% increase year-over-year from the same period in 2020. It also highlights developments in the fintech space such as special purpose acquisition companies (Spacs) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Spring is a time of change, and I take this opportunity to announce that I will be leaving FinTech Futures. I leave with a heavy heart as the team have provided me with the most fruitful experiences of my professional career; from finding fresh talent and revamping the site to forming the What the Fintech podcast – all enabled by a flexible and understanding environment, for which I will always be grateful.
I’d like to thank my editor-in-chief, Tanya Andreasyan, for providing the freedom to experiment with new ideas without obstruction. I’d also like to thank our reporter Ruby Hinchliffe for her tireless commitment to thought-provoking stories and passion for the sector. Thank you to our deputy editor, Alex Hamilton, for his fantastic work on the reports and as podcast host. My thanks to our marketing exec, Kiran Sandhu, who along with her work on the supplements, videos and creative flourishes, is the reason the podcast is successfully recorded each week(!), and thank you to the magazine’s production manager, Simon Turner, for his creative vision.
The conditions surrounding the pandemic mean that our team has had to exist solely on Zoom chats and virtual workspaces, and it has been difficult to move on to pastures new under these circumstances, but I’m sure that once vaccinations are administered, restrictions are lifted and the long readjustment to ordinary life resumes, I will have the opportunity to thank you all in person.
Lastly, I thank the readership; FinTech Futures will continue to provide news, features and critical insights, and I depart knowing the magazine remains in excellent hands.
