Financial technology, or fintech, is a booming industry right now, with investment flooding into companies reinventing the way we do payments, lending, investing, and more.

Valuations in the sector are also sky-rocketing as more money floods in. Many companies are now reaching the fabled "unicorn" status — the term in the tech industry for companies worth $1 billion (£640 million) or more.

We will discuss the #FinTech valuations, the unicorns and why some of them have been acquired or lost value.
