Weekly podcasts to demystify the world of financial technology or fintech have been launched by the Economic Development Department.

A spokesman for the Department of Economy and Labor said the emerging industry, courted by the Bermuda government, was growing on the island and changing conversations on the subject.

“So it’s increasingly crucial for Bermudians to be well-versed and knowledgeable about fintech and the many ways it can benefit the island and locals,” he said.

“Fintech Fridays”, with guest speakers, will be broadcast weekly on various platforms, including Spotify, Anchorand YouTube.

The First episode on July 22, presented by the Fintech Prime Minister’s Office, outlined the Office of Fintech and the island’s fintech sector.

Jason Hayward, Minister for Economy and Labour, said Fintech Fridays will help create “an informed and connected workforce”.

“In a light and informative way, the podcast aims to introduce listeners to the basics of fintech and its transformative impact on financial services locally and globally.

“I encourage everyone to tune into the podcast and leave their comments and reviews.”
