European fintech weekly: After a last-minute fundraise, what lies ahead for Zopa and its lending peers
The issue is that this came with minimum capital requirements, which Zopa came close to slipping below before Wednesday’s last-minute funding bail-out.

To their credit, they’ve overtaken several big banks like Lloyds and RBS who are losing current account customers overall.
