From the advent of the cash machine to P2P lending platforms, FinTech has radically changed the way we live our lives and how businesses do business.

Can you remember a time when you didn’t have a mobile phone? Or when the idea of trading money or buying things using your phone seemed dangerous and unusual? Chances are you might.
