The view from the top of business. Presented by Evan Davis, The Bottom Line cuts through confusion and spin to present a clearer view of the business world through discussion with people running leading and emerging companies. This week, Evan meets three pioneers of alternative finance and asks if they can beat the banks at their own game.
Giles Andrews is CEO of Zopa, the peer-to-peer lending website. Anil Stocker is co-founder of Market Invoice, an online finance provider that allows companies to turn invoices into working capital. Michael Joseph is director of mobile money at Vodafone and former CEO of the Kenyan mobile phone provider Safaricom, where he launched the revolutionary mobile money transfer service, M-Pesa.
