Why attend?

The Fintech revolution is well and truly underway and London is the world leader

The Fintech revolution is well and truly underway and London is the world leader. As the present boom in Fintech continues to be as much an opportunity as it is a threat for the financial services industry, we are bringing together the people who are making things happen at the very forefront of this powerful and emerging wave of business. They are the pioneering people and companies harnessing the power of Fintech, taking on and shaking up archaic business models, creating innovative and disruptive products and services and traversing borders.

With a post Brexit world looming on the horizon, continuing predictions for rapid growth in the Fintech space and the seismic shifts taking place in financial services across the planet, the London Fintech Conference provides an opportunity for the evaluation of the current state of the market, the exchange of ideas and possible solutions to the challenges lying ahead and through much debate, the exploration of what the future of Fintech may hold. We are making a key contribution to this exciting dialog – join us so you can stay ahead of the game!

After 2008 financial crisis and the corresponding onslaught of regulation in the financial services industry, Fintech has enjoyed a meteoric rise, becoming one of the fastest growing and changing sectors worldwide. It plays a dominant role in changing the future world of finance and indeed our planet as whole.

In this one day extravaganza we are bringing together and shining a spotlight on the leaders of this revolution and are celebrating the most disruptive players and most ground breaking companies. Discover those at the forefront of the mass overhaul of traditional businesses models, processes and systems through technology that is currently taking place.

Fintech is today in a state of evolution – the LFC acts as part crystal ball and part rear view-mirror – you do not want to miss out!
