Joining a fintech community is a great way to get clued-up, stay up-to-date on the latest trends, learn from other professionals, and network with potential employers or partners. Today, we’ll outline our 3 go-to fintech communities, before detailing the events you can trade this week.

BTW — if you’re attending iFXEXPO next week, our director Niki will be talking Fintech communities in the Ideas Hub. Come join us!

#1 Fintech Circle

Fintech Circle is a global community for fintech professionals. It was founded in 2015 by Susanne Chishti, an award-winning entrepreneur and investor. The community has over 20,000 members from over 100 countries.

The company hosts a variety of in-person events, including conferences, meetups, and workshops. It also hosts online webinars and interviews on loads of topics connected to the world of fintech.

Like the other of the websites on this list, the forum/discussion area is where it’s at. Here, members can discuss the A-Z of finance, get advice from other professionals, share ideas, and learn about new developments in the industry.

#2 Fintech Insider

Fintech Insider is another top community for people across the finance spectrum. It was founded in 2015 by David M. Brear, a former fintech professional at Lloyds Bank and Aviva. The website has over 1 million monthly visitors.

Fintech Insider is centred around a bi-weekly podcast, hosted by Brear. But it’s also home to an entire community of dedicated listeners who are very active on social media.

The podcast covers news and in-depth analysis that can come in handy if you’re looking to uncover the latest trends and top-performing instruments.

On social media, you’ll find an active community discussing topics ranging from the latest news and trends in fintech, such as the rise (and fall…and rise) of crypto, to the various challenges and opportunities facing traders, such as regulation and competition.

The entire 807-episode back-catalogue of podcasts is available on the website.

#3 Reddit

This is a bit of a Pandora's box, to be honest! As you probably know, Reddit is not a fintech forum, but it’s finance sub-Reddit communities are among the most active and engaged on the web. Our favourite is r/fintech, Oh, and don’t forget r/wallstreetbets.

You only need to turn the clock back a couple of years to see the power that these forums can have. r/wallstreetbets was responsible for that crazy rise of Gamestop stock, initiating a short squeeze in January 2021.

There are just 3 great places to look if you want to read around the industry and join fellow traders in their discussions. However, if you’re looking for a bit more variety, we also recommend The FinTech Times and Finextra — both are great and highly-active communities!

What’s your fave?
