London to remain FinTech hub says Stripe boss

In an interview with The Telegraph, Matthew Henderson, Head of Product for EMEA, said London will remain the place to be for FinTech.

In Brief:

  • This is despite factors like Coronavirus and Brexit.

  • He added Stripe has processed over $1bn transactions from new users since March.

At the end of last year it was reported that London had overtaken New York as the city seeing the highest number of investment deals in FinTech.
