March Newsletter

The year is off to a great start at Latinos in Finance! We'd like to provide you with an update on our most recent FinTech event, as well as a calendar of events that LIF members will be attending in the month of March. 


FinTech: The Future of Finance Update

Latinos in Finance, in partnership with the San Francisco ALPFA Chapter, hosted over 60 attendees at KPMG's San Francisco office to learn about the current state, and future, of Financial Technology (FinTech). The event provided an introduction to FinTech, and covered the current organizations paving the way for a new financial landscape. The event also highlighted different paths that students and young professionals can take to pursue a career in FinTech. We'd like to extend a special thank you to the moderator and panelists for contributing their knowledge and expertise during the event.
