In episode 3 of Millennial Money Matters, we look at Funding Circle, one of the leading lights of financial technology in the UK. Funding Circle is an online marketplace where loans to small businesses are funded by a range of investors, both individual and professional. Launched back in 2010, Funding Circle now ranks among only a handful of UK "unicorns" – privately held tech firms with valuations north of £1bn. David de Koning, global head of communications at the company, joins us on the show.
