What better venue to discuss the difference between revolution and evolution than in the towering Aqua Shard with its bird's eye view over The City? Joining a group of industry commentators, I went along to a discussion there earlier this month, led by C2FO and Tradeshift. The panel were taking a look at the impact of fintech on working capital, pondering the question of whether we are in the throes of a revolution or simply following an evolutionary journey. It's tempting to view the rapid explosion of fintech as something set to blast the cobwebs off the banks and revolutionise the world of finance. But everything starts from somewhere, so for all the noise, maybe it’s really a case of business as usual, just better.
