SME Finance funded with €100m from Fasanara Capital.



The new cash extends an existing funding facility to €240m, helping the Lithuanian expand its SME lending in the Baltic region and Finland.




 



Student loans: The truth about uni fees, loans and grants.



Ignore newspaper headlines about students leaving university with £50,000 of debt. That's mostly a meaningless figure. What counts is how much you'll repay. For some that's far more, for others it's free. This guide is written to bust common myths about student loans, grants and finance, including the 20+ key facts every potential student, parent and grandparent should know.



 



Stablecoins need ‘high quality’ backing to meet Bank of England’s standards.



Stablecoins could improve efficiency in the payments sector but will need to be backed by “high quality and liquid assets” to meet the Bank of England’s regulatory standards, deputy governor Jon Cunliffe said today.




 


The ChatGPT moment for the tokenization of financial assets.



As the world continues to embrace emerging technologies, tokenization of real-world assets (RWAs) has gained significant momentum. Cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and digital tokens are reshaping industries and presenting exciting new opportunities. Yet we have not reached the pinnacle of mass adoption and hype of this industry defining technology that BlackRock’s CEO Larry Fink, Citigroup, and BCG have all mentioned to be valued in the Trillions of dollars. In this blog post, we will delve into the landscape of the tokenization of RWAs, its potential use cases, and the regulations that are paving the way for mainstream adoption.




 



Millions of Kenyans indebted to mobile app lenders.



Loans through mobile apps have skyrocketed in Kenya. While this fintech industry provides easy-to-access credits, it has become a nightmare. Experts fear the largely unregulated market could lead to a credit crisis.
