Welcome to the Tearsheet Podcast. I'm Zack Miller.
As Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and initial coin offerings push to new heights, top financial institutions and banks are rushing to figure out just what their future role will be around the blockchain.

As part of an ongoing series, we talk to professional investors in the fintech space to get a feel for what's on their radar screen. I enjoy these discussions because, if these investors are right in their analysis, they give you a little taste of what's to come in the near future in financial technology.
Today's guest is Chris Sugden, Managing Partner at Edison Partners, a Princeton NJ growth equity firm that invests in companies generating revenues of $5 to $20 million. After 31 years in the business, Edison is on its 8th fund. Chris leads the firm's activity in fintech and was previously an entrepreneur in the billing and payment space.
Chris joins us today on the Tearsheet podcast to discuss the role growth equity plays in the fintech ecosystem. We get the low down on his firm's portfolio which includes investments like early forex leader Gain Capital, vertical payments player PHX, and personal finance manager MoneyLion. Lastly, we talk about where Chris and Edison are looking to make fintech investments in the future.
