December 2019 FS Focus: the last-ever print issue. New Focus issues in 2020

Read articles online or download full edition

The December issue of FS Focus will be the last-ever print issue, with the magazine being replaced by online-only Banking Focus, Insurance Focus and Investment Management Focus next year.

In this issue we examine exactly what is happening in the booming world of the fintech unicorns. Are the ever-higher valuations justified? Or are they just another symptom of a wider technology bubble? If it is just a bubble, are we close to reaching bursting point?

We also hear the views of Anne Boden at Starling Bank and examine what the results of the latest EY Fintech Census say about the market. Elsewhere there are features on ethics and the use of data, measuring culture and a look back at the last 12 years of FS Focus.
