'My career as a financial professional started almost ten years ago. I came to understand this industry and its potential after more three years spent as editor of a daily newsletter focusing on financial markets infrastructure, and after having seen the continuously increasing flow of news related to FinTech companies. That is why I believe FinTech already reached the status of a distinct industry thus deserving a dedicated daily bulletin. My aim is to observe and analyze this industry's very dynamic evolution, capture the essence and present it objectively.' - Florin Adrian Oprea, Editor-in-chief
