Business leaders need determination and focus. A great example is Anneli Ritari-Stewart, the managing director of iProspect in Edinburgh.

Fintech rising

Scotland’s growing fintech sector is getting another big boost – Edinburgh-based financial wrap platform Nucleus has revealed plans for a flotation on AIM. It’s founder, David Ferguson, also happens to be the chairman of burgeoning trade body, FinTech Scotland. The Daily Business gets the scoop.

It is the second time the historic building has been ravaged by fire. The city mourns.
