Article 50. Well, we went through with it and signed the divorce papers. Does the triggering of Article 50 put FinTech at risk in the UK? On this episode of FinTech Insider News, you’ll hear a range of opinions, from fear the UK is throwing away its work to lead the globe in FinTech, to optimism that London has the talent and regulatory regime to remain one of the world’s greatest cities. We also talk about BBVA joining Hyperledger; Alibaba and Tencent and the coming FinTech boom; and 11:FS celebrating its first birthday ????????????

As part of this milestone, we’ve officially launched 11:FS Pulse, our competitor insights research platform. We think you’ll love it.
