ABOUT FF NEWS | FINTECH FINANCE
At FF News we work with thought leaders in the fintech, insurtech and financial services industries, all over the world.
In addition to publishing a constant stream of online news and coverage from the most prominent industry events, we produce video episodes and bespoke content tackling a range of topics, as well as quarterly digital and print publications.
Our clients receive marketing content with a long shelf life and ‘evergreen’ appeal. It helps them to package, deliver and broadcast their message and it’s shared through our extensive network (ffnews. com, LinkedIn,Twitter and YouTube as well as our magazines and newsletters) and their own channels.
Our products are consumed by key financial decision-makers so that they can gain reliable and accurate intelligence on emerging trends, breakthrough technologies and industry disruptors, helping them to make dependable and informed choices.
A breakdown of these engaged leadership figures by geography, job role and the organisations they represent can be found on pages 16 - 20.
FINTECH SHOW PAYTECH SHOW INSURTECH SHOW
Our flagship products are our thought leadership-style, documentary episodes where we highlight industry pioneers through Q & A, storytelling and structured conversation.
When filming an episode, we can travel to your office, wherever it is in the world, or host your speaker in our London studio for a high-production, in-depth interview aimed at contextualising your place within the industry.
Video Episode from £10,900
Video Episode + Magazine from £14,500
We then combine this with footage from an interview on the same topic with a current or potential partner, where we’ll cover the challenges the industry is facing to demonstrate the solutions to these challenges that your technology can provide and highlight why you are the perfect partner of choice.
We take footage shot for the episodes to produce micro-content which we use to promote the full length videos online and our editorial team can also use a transcript of the interviews to write a DPS feature in the magazine.
The FF Virtual Arena format was developed to respond to the challenges of the pandemic after in-person filming was restricted. The success of the Virtual Arena continues, as it allows for a lively, moderated panel discussion. Similar to our

work on The Insurtech Show , the FF Virtual Arena episodes focus on thought leaders and industry disruptors in a Q&A panel format. It’s recorded remotely and streamed as live to our engaged social following before being published and promoted across all FF News channels.
Through the FF Virtual Arena , we can host multiple executives from various organisations; banks, insurance companies, PSPs, insurtechs, influencers, analysts, etc, which we will arrange and organise through our network. Topics for discussion and third parties are chosen during the production process to craft a bespoke narrative.
We’re renowned for producing engaging, evergreen and creative video content. When it comes to delivering your message to your audience, or approaching you with new angles, we’re well-versed and able to apply our industry knowledge for practical gain.
During the production process, we can use a mixture of storyboarding and pre-visualisation to present ideas to you, before shooting and editing the footage and we also operate a policy of including as many edits as you require.
With bespoke video production for obvious reasons, it’s very much price on application. However whatever we quote will be all-encompassing, with zero creep cost and no additional charges for travel etc. Our production crew will travel anywhere in the world that you want to film, or alternatively, we can use our dedicated studio space in the heart of London.
We’re often tasked with the production of bespoke videos for a wide variety of clients and for multiple purposes, from Quarterly Results, Customer Testimonials, Sales Kick-Off Videos, Pitch Videos, CSR pieces, VR, Drone, TV & Web Adverts, Quiz Events to even rap videos!
These projects are also sometimes white-labelled and we can carry out work under an NDA if required.
We have produced a number of whitepaper reports and case-studies with clients, but all too often, what we found missing from the process was suitable promotion. With this in mind we created the Bespoke Whitepaper Promotional Video.
The primary goal of these videos is to increase downloads by building curiosity and overcoming hesitancy; teasing the content and providing a call-to-action. By fulfilling the ‘what’s in it for me?’prospects are assured the content is valuable and are much more likely to part with their details in return.
Our production team will travel anywhere in the world to film the interview with your speaker for the video, or you also have the option of using our dedicated studio space in the heart of London.
Companies spend an absolute fortune at events.
Anecdotally, we have heard of a company paying more than £4 million (!) for a booth in 2019. And yet, a few years later, there is little to no online footprint of this presence. We look to change that with our event interviews. They typically involve us preparing questions in advance to align with your messaging and the reason you’re attending the event.
During the event, we will have a multi-camera set-up and can film on location, at your booth, or at our static pop-up studio on site. We also shoot a variety of B-roll which will include your branding and representatives and attendees at your booth, before combining all of this footage to create the video. Once approved, as well as giving you full access to all of the raw footage, we also publish the interview on the FF News homepage and through our social channels.
Priority Video at Event from £5,000
Priority Video at Event + Magazine from £6,000
For bespoke, white labelled event coverage please contact us about our bespoke video solutions.
We love to get creative with the bespoke coverage we produce. Sometimes having a contextual, fun twist can bring out the best conversations and make a real impact at an event.
In 2022, we launched Carpool Conversations and filmed the first series at ITC Vegas . Each episode features a one-on-one interview, recorded using multiple camera angles, whilst carpooling to an event in a high performance, electric, sports car. The interviews aren’t scripted, allowing for free-flowing conversation covering a range of topics, and during each episode we periodically cut to B-roll footage of the car, aerial footage and the local landmarks.
Pre-pandemic, we ran The Payments Race at Money20/20 for six seasons and we hope to be firing the starting gun again in the future.
Other approaches under the FF Presents banner have included The FF Salon at Fintech Week London and SIBOS , which was delivered as both short-form video clips and long-form audio podcasts and Cocktail Conversations from the FF Cocktail Club at Fintech Talents . Costing for all of these is on a by-request basis, as no two events are the same.

Throughout the year, we produce magazines exploring various topics within the financial services industry, which complement our Episodes and Virtual Arenas.
We feature interviews with thought leaders and experts from around the world, and dig deep into ideas, people and technology. From banks and insurance firms to financial technology companies, we uncover the pressing issues, opportunities and challenges they face.
Our magazines are available for free to anyone who registers, and are released in both physical and digital editions.
In addition to being sent via email to our subscribers and published and promoted via our extensive network, physical editions of the magazines are distributed at various events and trade shows such as Insurtech Insights Europe and USA and ITC Vegas .
Alongside our flagship publications such as The Insurtech Magazine , we produce a series of special supplements, including guides for some of the biggest shows and subject-specific publications, which have looked at, for example, AI, Blockchain and (big) Data .
We also regularly celebrate individuals with our Swashbucklers and Buckaroos special edition.

Each campaign will run for an agreed period of time, promoting your bespoke advert across the industry with targeted filters. Following this, we will share the report, outlining engagement throughout the campaign.
Costing for all of these is an on-request basis, as no two campaigns are the same.
In 2021, we hosted our inaugural awards show for the industry, The FF Awards . We developed a first-of-its-kind video entry awards system, with tiered judging and no pay-to-play. We created 15 categories and attracted 163 entries from fintechs all over the world, showing us their WOW moments. In the first year, more than 3,000 votes were cast.
We have to say (as objectively as we can) The FF Awards are… THE BEST award show in the fintech space.
In 2022 we built on this success and made it even bigger and better than before, bringing the total number of entries to more than 300 videos, attracting more than 5,000 votes.
2021 HIGHLIGHT REEL
The 2022 show pushed the bar higher, with some top-level surprises catching the attendees off guard!
