FINANCIAL TECHNOLOGY (FINTECH) in the CITY with FACTSET

FinTech is a buzz word you hear often but do you know what it means? Combining Finance and technology, it refers to any business that uses technology to enhance or automate financial services and processes.

It’s a rapidly growing industry that serves both consumers and businesses from mobile banking and insurance to cryptocurrency and investment apps and much much more.

Learn what’s what in Fintech, what careers are available and how you can get a head start with advice from volunteers at FactSet.

  • The team at The Brokerage have put together a very well thought out programme. They have even asked students to trial their content and have taken our thoughts into their consideration. All the modules will be really helpful to me because they target exactly what I am not sure about such as how to write a good CV and cover letter, and how to use LinkedIn most effectively. I think this has been a very beneficial opportunity to me; I can’t wait to start the programme!
