    This programme focuses on the rapidly-evolving segments of Alternative Finance available to smaller businesses as well as start-ups who may find it challenging to secure finance from traditional sources of financing. Such segments include equity crowdfunding, peer-to-peer lending (also known as marketplace lending), and online invoice trading. Financial technology (FinTech) has been the enabler for the rapid growth of Alternative Finance. The trainer will also share the issues, risks and lessons that can be drawn from recent case examples.
