The first month of the year has been an interesting one for FinTech – we’ve seen company expansions, VC investment, product updates and much more.

We filmed the FinTech Monthly for January 2016 at the Braintree office in central London – make sure you check out their series of FinTech articles on payments, ecommerce and more.

In the news
