From high-priced acquisitions to niche accelerator programs, fintech activity in the region has been on the rise lately.
Joel Dickson, Vanguard’s global head of investment R&D will kick off the event, followed by a presentation from John Evans, senior manager for investment fintech strategies at Vanguard, on how the OG investment firm is using tech to manage its massive portfolio, which spans $4.2 trillion in assets.
Vanguard’s most recent play in the fintech space is an upcoming 20-person R&D facility slated to open later this year at 2300 Chestnut St.

Following the introduction by Vanguard, there will be a panel of investors and companies talking fintech trends and funding.
- Tina Aufiero, SVP and managing director at Safeguard Scientifics
- Brandon Krieg, cofounder and CEO at Stash
- Steve Greenblatt, head of sales at Openfin
It’s interesting to see Safeguard getting all fintech with it. The Radnor investment firm has three fintech companies in its current portfolio: Lumesis, out of Stamford, Conn; and TREX Group and Transactis, both out of New York. Per spokesman Anthony Stipa, Safeguard is making a more active fintech push thanks to Aufiero’s network in the field.
