Fintech UXers Share Their Secrets

Financial technology (fintech) increasingly factors in our lives. From banking to mortgage lending, from digital wallets to investing, fintech continues to evolve in scope and from the purely functional to the brand experience.

Fintech UXers must navigate a highly technical, fast-paced domain in addition to remarkably diverse stakeholder needs and attitudes.
