There is a relatively new and deep small-cap banking niche to know about – and it is experiencing a solid 2019 stock market rally. It’s the group known as FinTech. Our Chief Equity Strategist and Economist, John Blank, is here to elaborate.

1. What exactly is FinTech?

2. Is this an up and coming group to keep an eye on?

3. This emerging industry has a good Zacks Industry Ranking. Why is that?
