Finextra is collaborating with UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and London & Partners on 3 February on a fintech trade mission that will bring Nordic-Baltic startups to London to meet with UK banks, startups, and the Government.
Together, the UK and the Nordic-Baltic region are among the most significant and active fintech territories globally, home to strong international financial institutions renowned for their forward-looking approach to IT deployment and a variety of technology suppliers ranging from established players to innovative entrepreneurs and start-ups.
Christina Schiøtt Liaos, Nordic-Baltic Director of UK Trade & Investment based at the British Embassy in Copenhagen, explains the importance of the fintech fact finding mission to London: “I’m looking forward to showing the Nordic-Baltic fintech companies how vibrant and innovative the UK financial landscape is, and to give them the opportunity to create fruitful cooperation with attendees from banks, investors and the winder UK-based fintech ecosystem.”
UKTI and Finextra have brought together a group of banks, fintech startups and investors for a half-day programme which will feature a mixture of keynotes and panels on the drive for innovation in financial services and the requirements for achieving digital transformation strategies. A pitching session from the Nordic-Baltic startups will provide further insight into a range of emerging technologies shaping the future of banking.
This event is the finale of a successful four-part series in Denmark, Estonia, and a third session taking place in Stockholm this week. The debates from the previous events will be concluded with speakers, including Tom Jenkins, Head of Data Science and Innovation, Deutsche Bank, Richard Goold, partner, Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co, Jonathan Gittos, Dealmaker, UK Trade & Investment, and Radboud Vlaar, co-founder, OGC Partners.
