The public markets appear positive that financial technology companies are going to do well coming out of lockdown. Large listed fintechs, such as PayPal, Adyen and Afterpay, have now surged beyond their pre-Covid stock prices to hit all-time highs. Qatalyst Partners, a US boutique investment bank, also calculated that its fintech index is now outperforming the wider tech sector and the Nasdaq.

I am confident there is a bright future for the UK fintech sector too, if they can ride this Covid-19 crisis.  Let's hope the markets have got this one right.
