    Credibly's Partnership With Wirecard Continues The Digitization Of Lending

    Nowhere else in the economy are these themes of speed and reliability more highly prized than among small- and medium-sized business owners. In the 2019 edition of its annual Small Business Credit Survey, the Federal Reserve found that a lender’s speed of decision-making and business owners’ perception that their funding requests would be met were far-and-away the top reasons driving applications for financing to online lenders. Just this week, small business lender Credibly announced a partnership with Wirecard (OTCMKTS: WCAGY), a leading issuer of payout cards, aimed at further improving the speed at which applicants can be approved for and receive financing.

    FT calls in law firm to review reporting on Wirecard

    The Financial Times has hired a law firm to review its investigations into German payments company Wirecard, which has sued the newspaper over a series of reports alleging accounting irregularities. Editor Lionel Barber called in London-based law firm RPC after the Handelsblatt daily reported at the weekend that Wirecard had given evidence to German prosecutors alleging collusion between short sellers and employees of the Financial Times. The FT, in a statement on Tuesday, rejected these allegations which it said it considered a diversionary tactic aimed at stifling further reporting on Wirecard.

    Trade concerns keep a lid on Europe's rise, upbeat earnings boost Germany

    German shares led gains in Europe on Wednesday as robust earnings from the country's Siemens and Wirecard overshadowed mounting worries over a U.S.-China trade deal. Chinese Vice Premier Liu He will travel to Washington on Thursday for two days of trade talks, in a bid to avoid a sharp increase in tariffs on Chinese goods that U.S. President Donald Trump had threatened to impose over the weekend. "The fact that Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He is still expected to arrive in Washington to keep the talks going is probably the reason why this has not turned into an absolute meltdown," Elwin de Groot, head of macro strategy at Rabobank, said.
