Innovation starts at early research and finishes with exploitation. The right conditions will make that journey for product and service evolution and revolution faster and remove risk.
We will discuss the relevant stakeholders, their roles, overarching strategies and collaborative working, and the necessity for the correct skills.
FinTech is seen as the jewel in the crown for the UK economy as the largest of the emerging tech sectors. FinTech not only covers those technologies and methods that are applied into the more traditional financial services, but also the usage of financial mechanisms and business models in existing and emerging sectors. Ultimately this places FinTech at the centre of all business that the UK economy undertakes. Currently flourishing it is seen as both a financial tool to support us post Brexit and C19, as well as one of the elements of the economy to pull us through any economic slump through its continued to grow.
FinTech Wales works with the HM Treasury Envoy for Wales, the FinTech National Network and within Wales with Welsh Government and regional councils and growth deals. We represent and are building that environment to innovate, grow and protect FinTech in Wales
