Who's up, who's down? The alternative SME finance landscape
"Three years ago, Andy Davis found 49 internet-based alternatives to mainstream banks, ranging from P2P lending platforms to factoring and invoice discounting. He has a grandstand view of who’s up and who’s down in this most fluid and volatile part of the financial services industry. I am delighted that he has agreed to give us his own judgment on what is going on – and, in particular, where non-bank players are really starting to make a difference."
The FCA's asset management market study
"On November 18, the FCA published detailed terms of reference for a major investigation into the UK’s £6.6 trillion asset management industry. The Authority will focus on costs, competition and the role of investment consultants. Questions it will ask include: how do asset managers compete to deliver value? Are they willing and able to control costs and quality along the value chain? Are there barriers to innovation?"
