This alternative finance system was designed with the purpose to engage a debate and give a head start in mapping the new financial system that is currently emerging.

All Street, the portal for alternative finance and crowdfunding, introduces its graphical overview:

“New forms of finance powered by technological changes and higher social and environmental awareness slowly begin to arise and set up the basis of a very different financial system. The map depicts the fundamental reconfiguration of the existing financial system which is moving away from the current model of vertically-¬≠integrated monoliths towards a financial ecosystem of firms that compete along different banking function, recreating a more distributed value chain of the industry.”
