The UK fintech sector is booming. The massive £9.1 billion takeover of British payments processor Worldpay by US rival Vantiv helped the sector attract more investment than those in the US and China during the first half of this 2018, according to research by KPMG.

The combination of the country's established expertise in finance, regulatory support for open banking, and the growing number of consumers giving up on incumbent banks means investors are betting big that digital disruption to the sector will continue.

Here are some of the hottest fintech startups that are attracting their investment.
