In 2018, the number of Exceptional Talent Visas granted was within the previous quota.</p><p> </p><p>The increase in quota ensures that we have sufficient headroom in the Exceptional Talent route to continue to attract highly skilled people from across the globe; and is a demonstration of the Government’s commitment to ensuring that the UK remains a world-leader in the digital technology, science, arts and the creative sectors.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government has introduced a robust and proportionate regulatory regime for peer-to-peer (P2P) lending, balancing the need for consumer protection with allowing the sector to grow, innovate and provide competition in the lending market.</p><p> </p><p>The British Business Bank’s Small Business Finance Markets 2018/19 report sets out that P2P business lending increased to nearly £2.3bn in 2018, and assesses the P2P business lending markets in the UK, the USA and China. The report notes that the increased regulation in the P2P market in the UK has been mostly seen as positive, in contrast to China where regulators were slow to address the sector, leading to opportunities for fraudulent activity.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has been independently ranked by EY and Deloitte as the world’s leading hub for Fintech – the best place in the world to start and grow a Fintech firm. The Government is committed to ensuring that it remains the best place in the world for Fintech, and has set out how it intends to do that in the ambitious Fintech Sector Strategy, launched in March 2018.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is open to hearing views on this issue, and digital payments more broadly, as evidenced by its call for evidence on cash and digital payments in the new economy. Amongst other things, this explored how the Government can best support digital payments. The Government will formally respond to the call for evidence in due course.</p><p> </p><p>The European Commission is in the process of reviewing the effectiveness of the Interchange Fee Regulation as part of its usual process. The Payment Systems Regulator, who is the UK’s lead competent authority for the Interchange Fee Regulation, is also conducting a review into the supply of card-acquiring services. Amongst other things, this review will examine the fees merchants pay for these services. The Government has therefore not made a formal assessment of the Interchange Fee Regulation.</p> more like this
