MORE ABOUT OUR SUPPORT FOR EMERGING PEER TO PEER AND FINTECH LENDERS
Our commitment for the emerging peer-to-peer lending sector goes back to 2013 when the sector was in its infancy. The sector’s progress since then has demonstrated the validity of our approach.
In recent years the UK has emerged as a global centre for FinTech companies through a compelling combination of skills, investors, supportive regulation and London’s position as a world financial centre. The growing community of entrepreneurs has already built a number of “Unicorn” companies valued at above $1 billion.
Through the Business Finance Partnership and the Investment Programme, our willingness to invest public money alongside private investors is recognised by market leaders as having played a key role in this UK success story.
