In a communication to CBI members, Beckie Hart, Regional Director – Yorkshire & Humber, wrote:
“FinTech is a key part of the UK financial services sector and the disruptive ways in which such firms are innovating provide new approaches and standards for incumbent financial institutions and corporates alike to improve efficiency and customer experience.
We welcome you to join this lunch to hear more about the work of the CBI in FinTech, RegTech and Financial Innovation and to share examples of how your business is looking at adopting FinTech or disruptive technologies.
Ross Mumford, CBI Assistant Director for Financial Services, Julian Wells, of Whitecap Consulting and Richard Carter of Equiniti Credit Services, will present insights on the latest trends in UK FinTech and Financial Innovation.
Financial technology has enabled, and will continue to enable, growth in the rest of the economy by offering consumers, both individuals and business, greater accessibility to financial services and greater choice in the products they consume.
The CBI sees FinTech in the context of wider financial innovation, ensuring that firms across banking, asset management, FinTech, insurance and venture capital work together to increase efficiencies of financial services through the utilisation of RegTech and disruptive technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence and the internet of things.”
