The Search, Global Tour: United Kingdom

28 July 2021, 1:00 PM BST / 4:00 PM GST

The United Kingdom is Europe’s largest fintech hub, leading the way when it comes to innovation. In this session we’ll take a closer look at why the UK has attracted more than 10% of global market share in fintech, and how the fintech sector is now worth more than £11 billion a year to the UK economy.

This week’s webinar comes direct from Mansion House in London as we join the Lord Mayor of the City of London, William Russell, for a fireside chat on ‘Mobilising Capital for a Sustainable Future’.

We’ll also be hearing from Ron Kalifa OBE and uncovering the lessons he learned from his famed ‘Fintech Review’. And we’ll be meeting Simon Penny, UK Trade Commissioner, DIT to learn why the UK holds Europe’s fintech crown and why the UK is currently home to so many fintech unicorns.
