AltFi was founded back in the autumn of 2013 by executive directors David Stevenson and Rupert Taylor, both veterans of the investment world. Working with AltFi’s editor Ryan Weeks they observed that this disruptive financial sector needed a forum for global news, views and data – and of course a world class event through the AltFi Summits.
Our European and US summits have become a ‘must’ for anyone interested in the space while the team has also expanded alongside our specialist news and analysis coverage. AltFi Funding focuses on explaining alternative finance to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) whilst AltFi Investor is focused on providing incisive opinion and analysis for lenders and of course investors. AltFi’s sister company is AltFi Data, a consulting business whose quantitative indices include the LAFDI (an equity index tracking financial disruptors) and the LARI (tracking investment returns from the major P2P lending platforms).
