The financial industry is going through an unprecedented time. Between COVID-19, macroeconomic pressures, and upstarts vying for the same customers, financial services has to contend with a lot.
At Tearsheet, we've been tracking and reporting on all these changes. We're committed to going deeper to understand what keeps the top players competitive and how fintech firms are positioning themselves to gain marketshare.
Two new newsletters
We're launching two new newsletters: Payments and Embedded.
The Payments Newsletter will provide insight and commentary on payments, across all the different rails. Payments firms like Visa and Mastercard want to touch the different parts of a transaction, across rails and across countries. Payment firms like PayPal, Venmo, and Square's CashApp look a lot like banks these days. Nice payment firms like Toast are expanding more deeply into financial services for their customers.
The Embedded Newsletter reports on the integration of financial services into all industries. Banking is turning into something you do, not somewhere you go. People want to bank with the brands they love. Retailers like Walmart, transportation firms like Uber, and big software firms like Credit Karma and Intuit all offer financial services to their customers through partnerships with banks. Banking is seeping outside the four walls of the banking industry and into the world's top brands.
