Financial technology (FinTech) has emerged as a significant innovative and transformative force where the primary drivers are disruptive information systems technologies. As a result of the amplified role of FinTech, this article presents a review of FinTech research published in the top Information Systems (IS) journals over the 2010-2020 time period to assess the FinTech contributions made during the 10-year period by IS researchers. There is a unique opportunity for FinTech researchers to learn from and extend the work that has already been published in the highly correlated IS field. Our analysis reviewed 74 articles on a variety of FinTech topics published in the “Association for Information Systems Senior Scholars’ Basket of the top eight ranked IS academic journals. Across the selected IS publications, our findings compared research methodologies, topic areas investigated, and research trends. Our findings demonstrate that several methodologies are understudied or absent and a variety of FinTech topic areas require further exploration.
