There was a lot of talk this past week of the Uberization of finance. Whether it’s happening or not, users are getting treated to a renaissance of new finance tools.

We’re here at Tradestreaming to help make sense of all the fundings, product launches, and partnerships – to separate real trends from fanboy hype. To understand how disruptive technology is impacting today’s financial industry.
