Fintech experts will meet to discuss key issues in the industry, including diversity, open banking, digital IDs and cybersecurity at the first major industry event to take place since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Taking place in London between 12 and 16 July, FintechWeek will feature presentations from Imran Gulamhuseinwala, implementation trustee of the Open Banking Implementation Entity (OBIE), as well as author and commentator Chris Skinner opens the event with the future of Fintech and emerging trends, and MP Matt Warman, who will host a session around UK Digital Identity Framework.
All sessions will be live streamed for those who cannot make it in person.
“We have been blown away by the interest and support that we have received from the fintech industry in London and internationally,” said Raf De Kimpe, chief executive of FintechWeek London.
“Over the course of five days, we will welcome over 2,000 executives from high-street banks, digital challengers, technology giants, and new disruptors.
“FintechWeek London will host many of these industry leaders in person for the first time in so long, and we can’t wait to hear the fantastic discussions that will undoubtedly emerge. London still sits at the centre of global fintech, and we can clearly see the evidence of this as our event draws closer.”
Some of the other topics up for discussion include sustainable banking and green finance, and cryptocurrency.
In order to make the event Covid safe, all attendees will be asked to scan the NHS Track & Trace QR code at reception and temperature checks will be performed on entry. All visitors will be asked to wear a mask as much as possible and wash hands regularly.
