The Fintech Brief

The Fintech Brief combines daily picks of top fintech news with original content such as high quality interviews with leading pundits and drivers of fintech innovation - for instance the recent interview with Chris Skinner, our chairman and co-owner of NFI.

As a direct result of the collaboration with NFI, The Fintech Brief will supplement its broad macro coverage of global fintech trends with a specific focus on Nordic companies and initiatives. Together, we will make The Fintech Brief a real showcase of what the Nordics have to offer. We asked publisher Narve Hansen, CMO of BankAxept (one of NFI's founders), how he envisages the new collaboration.


What is The Fintech Brief?

- The Fintech Brief is a carefully curated weekly selection of excellent content from the fintech industry. Every Thursday, we bring to your mailbox a fresh selection of the best and most interesting journalism, opinions, news, trends – and occasional film interviews  – from a fintech community that is receiving a lot of attention. Launched in May 2016, the newsletter follows international developments, while maintaining a particular focus on Norwegian and Nordic news. The Fintech Brief makes the job easy for you where you get a weekly summary of the best content through our newsletter.


What will the collaboration with NFI mean?

- Well, NFI has very quickly become one of the most important networks for the Nordic fintech sector. NFI is a bridge builder between Nordic companies, global investors and potential partners - and want to showcase what is going on in the Nordics. The Fintech Brief is the perfect channel for this.


So how will The Fintech Brief's coverage encompass this Nordic focus?

- In several ways. In addition to curating international quality content and news about the Nordic fintech scene, we will begin to write and tape interviews with members and associates of the NFI network. We will pick Nordic movers with interesting initiatives to share their stories and views on the future of finance. We will also invite particularly interesting start-ups to our studio.


What now for The Fintech Brief? 

- After a soft launch in 2016, we are taking it to the next level, involving the network and members in NFI, producing exclusive interviews and building visibility and extending our scope in 2017. You can follow us on our website or sign up for our newsletter.
