FinTech IPO Index Slips 1.1% as Thanksgiving Shortens Trading Week 

The turkey has been carved. 

Thursday offered a brief respite from the volatility that’s been a hallmark of the FinTech IPO Index.  

Into a shortened week, through the past five sessions headed into Turkey Day, the index slipped 1.1%.

Paysafe shares slipped 13.9%, among the most notable performers to the downside.

This week, the firm said that it had extended its collaboration with Visa to integrate Visa Network Tokens as an alternative to primary credit and debit card account numbers. The announcement noted that Visa Network Tokens update expired card numbers in real time, eliminating unnecessary declines and ensuring recurring payment subscriptions remain uninterrupted. These Visa-generated network tokens are securely transmitted and stored by Paysafe in lieu of card PANs.
