Leeds Building Society has announced its partnership with FinTech North and will host the Leeds FinTech Report 2023 Launch Event at its offices on Sovereign Street to mark the beginning of their collaboration.
Leeds Building Society operates to ensure that more people have the home they want, and by working with FinTech North aims to bring cutting-edge thought leadership and technology together to help solve some of the most challenging homeownership problems for its current and future members.
The partnership marks the Society’s ongoing engagement with the FinTech sector and the start of a collaborative relationship to find innovative solutions to key customer needs which achieve its purpose of putting home ownership within reach of more people, generation after generation.
Vanessa Roberts, Head of Strategy at Leeds Building Society, said: “Making home ownership more achievable is the driver behind everything we do at Leeds Building Society. By partnering with FinTech North we hope to be able to work with new partners to trial and implement new solutions for our members. We hope to enhance the accessibility and affordability of borrowing and make saving for a home easier in order to help more people onto and up the housing ladder.
“We are proud to be championing the FinTech sector in one of the UK’s top regions for financial services. We’ve already achieved some impressive feats, such as adopting cloud-based capabilities to become best-in-class for decision-making on lending. Through this partnership with FinTech North we will be looking at solutions to help our aspirational homeowners navigate the cost-of-living crisis, and how we can provide meaningful support to our members.”
Joe Roche, Engagement Manager at FinTech North, said: “As the focal point for the FinTech community in the Northern Powerhouse we are thrilled to welcome Leeds Building Society to join our collaborative ecosystem.
“Sharing ideas and challenges means that we can facilitate connections and learn from one another and help deliver solutions to benefit customers.”
