The Concise Fintech Compendium
A guide through the Fintech jungle. More than 130 Fintech terms, acronyms and abbreviations explained in plain English.
To be meaningful and effective, discussions require sound definitions. Fintech as a rather young field of business and academic endeavor has not yet yielded commonly accepted definitions.
This booklet attempts to help building a definitional foundation for this new field by providing definitions for terms from the Fintech sphere, but also from its constituent subjects Finance and Technology. It is the result of many questions received from students, scholars, and practitioners alike and the discussions emerging from these inquiries.
