A Fintech World


What is happening in the Fintech world? Are we really in the middle of a revolution which will see business models change completely?

Financial services have been colliding with technology since the earliest computers. However, the emergence of new technologies had led to claims of an exponential inflection point in the technological impact on the financial services sector.

In this, the first of regular quarterly events looking at the Fintech sector, we hear from a panel of challenger Fintech businesses who are developing, what they believe, will be behaviour-changing products.
