Technology, Finance and P2P

The technology, finance and peer-to-peer sector has seen significant developments being made to solutions which change the way customers manage and use money

Change driven by rapid advancements in the technology, finance and P2P sector is a key influence on our social, political and economic lives.

Background

Although new concepts are created on a daily basis across the globe, for every idea which turns out to be the next big thing, there are hundreds more that aren't quite the finished article and many more that prove to be a failure. With billions of pounds of risk capital being deployed each year by investors who embrace the mantra "fail fast, fail often", it is a sector where restructuring and insolvency solutions are often required.

Outlook

Judging by recent headlines the industry is focused on challenger banks, the rise of peer-to-peer (P2P) lenders and alternative currencies using technology such as blockchain. However, businesses and customers are not concerned about how the technology works but whether it achieves what they would like it to.
