Digiday Media announced the acquisition and relaunch of Tradestreaming, an online B2B publication and media brand exploring the changing nature of money, its future, and the institutions that service it. The fintech media brand offers daily editorial, industry newsletters, podcast, branded content and an event.
According to CB Insights and KPMG’s Pulse of Fintech 2015 in Review Report, $13.8 billion in VC funding was deployed to fintech companies globally, more than double the value of VC investment in fintech in 2014. Fintech investment has continued its ascension in 2016. According to Accenture, global investment in fintech startups in the first quarter of 2016 grew 67 percent year-over-year to $5.3 billion. Since 2010, over 2,500 companies have received $50 billion in investments to change the flow of money.
“Financial models must iteratively evolve to remain competitive, and no one covers the rapidly changing fintech space better than Zack Miller and Tradestreaming,” says Nick Friese, CEO of Digiday Media. “Tradestreaming offers the expertise and editorial rigor required to uphold the high standards our readers have for Digiday Media properties.”
Tradestreaming is for those interested in the changing nature of money including banks, asset management, brokers, collaborative finance, fintech investors and lending institutions. The media brand will chronicle, analyze and understand technology’s impact on finance and how it’s changing the business through creating content, services and community that foster interaction between finance and technology industries.
“As a consultant, entrepreneur, and investor in next-generation finance companies, Tradestreaming represents a professional viewpoint on technology’s massive impact on the financial industry,” comments Zachary Miller, editor-in-chief of Tradestreaming. “We’re excited to be joining the growing Digiday Media family as we build the preeminent trade brand for professionals in the financial industry.”
Tradestreaming was founded by Miller and lists entrepreneur and angel investor, Amiad Solomon, as a shareholder. Tradestreaming’s editorial will continue to be led by Miller as editor-in-chief.
Tradestreaming will premiere its first annual event, the Tradestreaming MONEY Conference, on November 14, 2016 in New York City. The conference will feature the financial technology startups stealing the thunder from Wall Street as earnings remain down and entire business lines evaporate.
Editorial and sales operations will continue to be based in Israel, with staff to be added in New York City later this year.
