Working under the FinTech North banner, Whitecap Consulting is delighted to have been asked by the Department for International Trade to help deliver a FinTech mission in November 2017. This will involve 20 Nordic-Baltic FinTechs visiting the Northern Powerhouse to explore opportunities to work with UK banks, building societies and other FS providers.

The two-day programme will showcase the UK’s Northern Powerhouse cities of Manchester and Leeds. UK attendees will be primarily senior decision makers from UK financial services industry players including banks, building societies, mortgage lenders, insurance companies and other product and service providers.


The visiting Nordic-Baltic Fintech companies will get a chance to meet targeted potential business partners to gauge interest for their business development in the UK’s Northern Powerhouse. The FinTechs will receive an overview of the landscape and opportunities within the UK’s northern Digital / FinTech economy and will have the opportunity to deliver a 3 minute pitch of their proposition to the audience.
