Anyone with deep pockets can buy vast volumes of inventory but we pride ourselves on using our market leading technology and analytical capability to do so profitably. We’re very proud that a relatively small team has had such a profound impact on the UK financial services space. We recognise that we’re still a small part of the overall online eco system so are looking forward to strengthening our lead and further expanding our reach.”
