The Tyto Tech 500 Power List went live at the end of 2018, and for the first time, we can reveal the 10 most influential people in UK Fintech, as we dive into the data sector-by-sector.
It’s been quite a year for Fintech, as Monzo joined Europe’s Fintech ‘unicorns’ and Blockchain continue to be applied across everything from bonds to securitisation. As for 2019, the year is poised to see a continued focus on regulation– and, unsurprisingly, an increase in RegTech– as Fintech continues to mature and become more embedded in the established financial system. Trends around operational resilience and ensuring competition and fairness within the industry look setto be key in 2019 as well.
Which brings us back to this list of 10 people in the UK helping to drive and influence this space and what trends are we seeing in the shape and content of this list of influencers.
Influence in this sector is divvied up between business leaders, two venture capitalists and Sky News journalist Faisal Islam. Challenger consultancy 11FS holds the two top spots of influence.
