Five Fintechs On Friday August 4, 2022 – Intersekt 2022

This is an important study to inform our dealings with policymakers and the media. It lends our commentary and policy suggestions weight as it allows us to demonstrate that our key points truly reflect the views of the ecosystem. It is a highly valued source of information by both regulators and government.
