I'm Alex Johnson, the founder and writer of the Fintech Takes newsletter. I have been in and around the fintech industry for my entire career and realized that the amount of information and news surrounding fintech is enormous. I created this course as a foundational way to explain the ins and outs of fintech. I can't wait to share everything I've learned with you in my course!

What people are saying:

"Fintech takes by Alex Johnson is one of the most thought-provoking newsletters I've subscribed to. I love that he publishes information not available elsewhere, is never afraid to drop a hot take. I'll filter other newsletters, but never this one."

"While I work in fintech, I’m far from being an industry nerd, and this course was an awesome way of is my  staying abreast of industry trends and changes!"

"I've fallen behind on reading 98% of  fintech newsletters i'm subscribed to but yours is still my top read. Basically, even if I don't read any others, I always make time to read yours."

Alex Johnson is the founder and author of Fintech Takes, a leading publication focused on the collision of banking and technology. Prior to founding Fintech Takes, Johnson spent 15+ years working in marketing, business development, and market research roles at companies including FICO, Cornerstone Advisors, and Mercator Advisory Group. His analysis has been featured in numerous media outlets, including Business Insider, The Wall Street Journal, and the NBC Nightly News.
