Fintech’s march to ubiquity To the Point with Portland

    • Business

‘Fintech’ is transcending mere ‘financial technology’ and becoming a core part of a wide array of everyday services. With this in mind, Portland partner Luke Baker sits down with Mark Whitcroft, one of the UK’s leading fintech nurturers and early-stage investors, and a founding partner of Illuminate Financial. The pair look at what the future holds for fintech, how the sector will cope in an economic downturn, why money raised does not always equal start-up success, and the looming presence of blockchain technology.
