QWAFAFEW FinTech Holiday Party
& A Bird’s Eye View of FinTech

Come and mingle with your QWAFAFEW friends as we say goodbye to 2019 and get ready to ring in the New Year. Welcome 2020.

Along with the festivities, we will have our friend D Shahrawat, Director in the Investment Banking practice at Rosenblatt Securities on Wall Street, spend an hour with us describing the major FinTech events in 2019 and what to look for in 2020. (Rosenblatt Securities is the largest floor broker on the New York Stock Exchange and is very active in both the public and private financial market).

D will share a year’s worth of FinTech perspective covering the key events of 2019 including a recap of funding, M&A and major trends this year. He will then walk us through what to expect in 2020, briefly covering the following issues:

Which sectors, technologies and concepts are worth keeping an eye on
How is the FinTech market evolving
What can we expect for FinTech in an election year

You don’t want to miss an opportunity to be at the Holiday party, have a cocktail and contemplate FinTech’s future in 2020.
