Daily Fintech is based on four core principles

  • 10 is better than 100

 

  • Transparency matters

 

  • Invite only experts with rigorous editorial process

 

  • Insight is based on figuring out where the puck is headed

Our work, based on these 4 principles, has been recognised with the silver medal in this Feedspot ranking of 100 Fintech blogs.

10 is better than 100

Daily Fintech was created to challenge the assumptions driving online advertising by asking what is more valuable:

A. 10 leaders in the global Fintech market who determine how $ billions of value are created.

B. 100 people with no money or influence or expertise.

The currency of the web (advertising) says B is 10x more valuable than A. That is clearly broken.

Everything we do is designed to protect the time of the small number of people who determine how $ billions of value are created, because time is the one thing we cannot manufacture more of. That respect for attention drives how we write and what we write about. It also explains why we don’t employ any of the normal tricks to grab attention – all of them are as annoying as somebody at a party using a megaphone to talk to you. Our respect for time is why our platform is highly curated. In order to avoid wasting attention with one off posts with lots of overlap, our Experts deliver their insights within a specific domain.

That insight is made available to you for US$143 a year (which equates to $2.75 per week).$2.75 buys you a coffee (maybe), or the cost of a week’s subscription to the global Fintech blog – caffeine for the mind that could be worth $ millions.

 

Transparency matters

Separation of church and state (editorial and advertising) is old-fashioned, but we believe it is still important. You should know if the person you are reading has a hidden agenda to sell you something. All our content creators follow a strict disclosure policy.

We believe that transparency should extend to ownership and management:

Daily Fintech is owned by Bernard Lunn, who serves as both CEO and Editor and occasional content creator.

Invite only experts with rigorous editorial process

 To achieve the mission of delivering unique insight about Fintech each and every day, we have assembled a team of experts who add value because we bring the perspective of our work as entrepreneurs, bankers, senior executives, technologists, investors and consultants. Our insights are created by people who have “walked a mile in your shoes’.

We invite experts who really understand the complexities of both finance (including insurance) and technology (including crypto). Our view is that it is easier to help an expert in a market learn a few basic journalism techniques than to expect journalists to be experts in complex fast-changing markets.

We do not simply invite them and then let them post anything. Daily Fintech content creators go through a rigorous onboarding process and have to comply with strict editorial principles.

Insight is based on figuring out where the puck is headed 

Our mantra at Daily Fintech is “before it is news, you may read about it on Daily Fintech”.

At Daily Fintech, we do not simply track and analyse the news. We are also attempting something harder which is to anticipate what the news will be in future. Figuring out what is likely to happen is very valuable for investors, entrepreneurs and incumbents. 

We do this by using our experience as entrepreneurs and investors to figure out where the puck is headed.

One example of anticipating news is what we wrote about Facebook 4 years before the news of Facebook’s Libra coin. The reason we can sometimes anticipate future news is a mix of knowledge, habit, observation and thinking like an entrepreneur:

  • Knowledge. Innovation today is happening at the intersection of technology, media, society/politics and finance. Our experts know all four.

 

  • Habit. We make a habit of assessing direction of travel aka “where the puck is headed”. Taking the Facebook example, we figured out the direction – that Facebook would issue a Coin to enable cross border instant payments to monetise WhatsApp.  

 

  • Observation. We constantly observe the megatrends driving Fintech globally and the cards held by some of the major players in the game.

 

  • Thinking like an entrepreneur. We figure out roughly when something will happen by using our  entrepreneurial experience how we would play such a hand if we were one of those players.
