This Week at FINOS: Week of January 6, 2020

January 06, 2020
Dear FINOS Community, 
Happy New Year and welcome back to what promises to be an exciting year of Open Source at FINOS!

In normal FINOS style, we don't like to coast into our work, so join the excitement by raising pull requests, suggesting new features, communicating issues and joining working group calls. We look forward to growing the industry with you in 2020.

In the meantime, for those in the UK who'd like to join me at the first Fintech and Banking meetup of the year, I'll be in Bristol on Jan 7th at South West Leaders in Tech on the discussion panel with Nationwide, RBS, Tide and Tumelo.
Here's what's happening in the week of January 6th, 2020 within the FINOS community. Please feel free to forward this email to colleagues and industry partners who you think will be interested in FINOS. If someone forwarded this email to you and you'd like to subscribe, please send a note to and you'll be added to the mailing list.
