Held at the QEII Centre in the heart of Westminster, our annual conference, FinTech LIVE London 2023, proved to be a disruptive learning and networking experience. 

The two-day event gave leading lights from across the fintech industry an opportunity to showcase their latest strategies, projects and innovations, while attendees soaked up valuable insight and expertise.

After lunch on day two, the Stage 1 audience heard from Adam French, Non-Executive Director at Innovate Finance, the independent industry body for UK fintech. 

UK remains at the forefront of fintech

Introducing Innovate Finance, French said: "Innovate Finance is an organisation I first met back in 2015, and they have since become the foremost voice for fintech here in the UK as the industry body.

"Today, it's a 250-member community and they really do have the priorities of the fintech industry at heart, and they are the voice in front of all of the important institutions here in the UK and abroad to make sure fintechs are getting what they need. It's a small team and they do a lot." 

Asked why the fintech industry in the UK has been so strong in recent years, French responded: "I think it's built off the back of a strong financial services industry.

"London and the UK is just very well positioned to serve the global finance community, and it has all of the elements needed to therefore build a thriving fintech community.

"It has talent that knows how to solve the big problems; it has access to capital willing to be deployed into businesses looking to build in this space; and historically has had access to a very big global market – fantastic ingredients to for the fintech industry to be able to make London and the UK its home."
