At Forefront Communications, the capital markets and institutional fintech are at the heart of our work. Our team has decades of experience in this space, and we try to bring this knowledge to bear on everything we do. One example is the Forefront Fintech Digest, where we filter each day’s news cycle into a one-stop shop for the headlines that industry professionals need to see. On our Twitter and LinkedIn feeds, we share not just the news from our clients, but also the stories and trends that are shaping finance.

Today, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new podcast – At the Forefront: Fintech Conversations. Like the Digest and our digital efforts, our hope is that this series will help our followers stay informed, highlight key industry developments and delve into the people, companies and thought processes that keep the capital markets and fintech humming.

In addition to our deep knowledge of this space, the makeup of our team puts us in a unique position to spotlight these topics through a variety of media. Several of our team members are former journalists, with the curiosity and experience to get to the heart of any story and ask questions designed to reveal insights and maximize the value of the interview for our listeners. Of course, we want to give industry firms a chance to tell their stories in their own words, but we’re not going to shy away from the tough stuff either. Our ultimate goal is to leverage our network and our know-how to bring you insights and trends that help keep you at the industry’s forefront (sorry, couldn’t resist…).

Our inaugural episode, featuring Luminex Head of Product David Hagen and LeveL ATS CEO Whit Conary is now live. Hosted by Forefront Senior Vice President Michael Kingsley, the conversation focuses on the unique new partnership formed by these nominal competitors and tackles a variety of topics across the ATS space at large. We hope you’ll tune in and find a compelling discussion that keeps you coming back for more.

We plan to regularly post new episodes throughout the year, available on both our website and on Spotify. If you have an idea for an interview subject or a great story to tell, we want to hear about it – please fill out the form below.

Along with the Forefront Fintech Digest and our feature-length articles on key industry issues, this is an exciting new chapter in our ongoing effort to produce content of value to capital markets and institutional fintech professionals. We hope you’ll join us on the journey. Happy listening!
