Effects of Donald Trump’s Presidency on Financial Services and Fintech

The financial markets were slightly surprised by the presidential outcome with Dow futures down approximately 250 points on Wednesday morning; uncertainty over some big changes specifically in financial services from Donald Trump will be a factor for markets and the industry going forward; in financial services Trump looks to deregulate the industry easing many of the controls implemented by Dodd-Frank; another factor for fintech will be Trump’s position on net neutrality which could limit open source internet development; overall, speculators see increased volatility and uncertainty for the near-term.  Source
