Fintech startups are beginning to look over their shoulders and really, it was just a matter of time. Whether you’re a robo-advisor or online lending platform, once you prove you can build an interesting business, you have to imagine the Goldmans, Blackstones, and Schwabs are going to want to taste your lunch, too. 
And that’s happening. We’re reading of pending or existing incumbent offerings in many of the different subsectors of fintech. That’s ultimately good for the space – we’ll see increased competition, increased funding, increased advertising budgets, and increased customer education. Of course, ultimately, we’ll see (more) consolidation, too. Stick with us as we continue to explore all the developments in fintech land.
