Financial companies come in all shapes and sizes, from financial institutions to insurance companies to financial technology (fintech) companies. In general, these companies provide a financial service to their customers—like loans, credit cards, asset management, etc.—and are typically relatively stable investments. 

But investors should know that during recessions and economic instability, financial stocks are usually some of the first to take it on the chin. The COVID-19 pandemic caused economic instability around the globe in 2020 and some financial stocks, particularly banks, were hit hard.
