|Sir, everything can be found in Google.
But honestly, if you ever worked in finance and have a solid background, understand what PM is and how to manage it, you can do it .
Otherwise, you are software person, so maybe you do not have a clear understanding of finances and just want to embark on it because somebody told you that PM is the lake of revenue.
I think if you want to launch a financial firm, favourably fintech product or service, you’d better continue developing computer skills and find the partner with solid finance background. So the technical parts are gonna be addressed to you and financial part to him
Many fintech developers are from mathematics and computer science, for instance Robinhood.
