Federico Beltrame, Gianni Zorzi, and Luca Grassetti study whether and how investments in FinTech affect performance, risk, and value of listed Italian banks, using a sample of 17 Italian listed banks from 2013 to 2019, representing the largest institutions operating in the Italian banking industry.

Finally, the paper by Gonca Atici examines firstly blockchain, secondly it focuses on the governance concept and then the author analyzes the nexus of blockchain and governance, contributing to the extant scarce literature by covering the recent developments on the subject.

The results of the above papers, which are in various disciplines of finance and management focus on the new trends and are more than interesting, practical, and useful to investors, practitioners and academics.
