Baron FinTech Fund, in its Q3 2021 investor letter, mentioned Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. (NYSE: FIS) and discussed its stance on the firm.

Here is what Baron FinTech Fund has to say about Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. in its Q3 2021 investor letter:

"Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. provides software to financial institutions and enables merchants to accept electronic payments. The company reported solid quarterly financial results that exceeded expectations and raised annual guidance for revenue and earnings. However, the stock fell due to concerns that Fidelity National’s legacy technology is losing market share to newer competitors with more modern technology. We believe these concerns are overblown and that Fidelity National remains well positioned to grow revenues organically at a high single-digit rate and earnings at a double-digit rate over time."
