More UK-based FinTech unicorns than in the rest of Europe combined

FinTech: Anything but alternative reveals that the UK has four of these ‘unicorn’ companies, with a combined value of $18.5bn (£14.4bn), while Sweden and the Netherlands each have one valued at $2.3bn. Previous research suggests that Britain’s leadership in FinTech comes despite its decision to leave the EU, with nine of the UK’s top 20 deals last year completed after the referendum result.
