Hot Financial Stocks To Watch Right Now

For two years, Forbes has published our Fintech 50 list, showcasing the top companies shaping "the future of your money." (See the 2015 and 2016 lists.)

These innovative startups are making it easier for suppliers in emerging economies to get paid, for low-mileage drivers to save hundreds of dollars a year, for your financial advisor to create a tailored-for-you portfolio, and enabling even more technological advances that benefit many of us daily, unbeknownst to us.

If the Great Recession shook trust in global finance, these are the firms that are building it back up.

We’re about to begin updating the list for the third year — a multi-month process which entails gathering nominations, sifting through them, talking with hundreds of companies, understanding the cutting edge of specialties within fintech and then winnowing our choices down to the best.

This is our call for nominations.

Advisors’ Opinion:

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By ]

    Market Exchanges like the CME Group (Nasdaq: CME) have just started allowing trading in bitcoin futures and could attract an entirely new type of retail user as well as allowing institutional clients access to the bitcoin theme.

    My pick this week has created a faster, more centralized marketplace for bond traders… and it’s led by a guy who once worked the trading floors of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). Better yet, recently passed regulations could force traders’ hands in joining this new system.

    3. BofI Holding (NASDAQ:BOFI) is a more speculative choice, but one that deserves serious consideration.
