Bankers lured towards the FinTech field need to think carefully before making the switch


There has been a lot of talk lately about bankers moving into financial technology and starting up their own companies in this sphere. I have been on the client side of investment banking for over eight years now and I am wondering if I am being left behind. I have moderate IT skills, but my passion is for dealing with clients on a personal level. With a wave of layoffs at major banks recently, should I be looking at upgrading my skills to become more tech savvy?
