Record levels of investment poured into the community, with $16bn secured in the first six months of 2018, exceeding the value of investment in US fintech by almost $2bn. In addition, progressive regulation and a thriving financial services sector attracted more entrepreneurs from around the world. According to EY, the UK is home to 1,600 fintech companies, with over 80 per cent based in London – creating a true global fintech capital.
