2nd September 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us for a discussion on the biggest Fintech trends and technologies to watch in 2021 and beyond!
Year after year, and all over the globe, the adoption of fintech services by consumers has been rising dramatically. In 2015, only 16% of consumers actively used fintech services, but by 2019, 64% were engaging directly with fintech products, with a staggering 96% of consumers aware of fintech alternatives to traditional payments and banking. Meanwhile, Investment in UK fintech has reached an all-time high, as firms in the industry attracted an astounding $24.5bn in the first half of 2021.
Unlike many other industries, 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic propelled the sector’s growth and thrust fintech further into the spotlight, as consumers searched for accessible digital solutions to manage their personal and professional finances. With the world becoming more accustomed to fintech, and the revolutionary possibilities of new tech, these challengers are solidifying their position as competitors on the worldwide financial stage.
For this event, we’re bringing together industry experts to discuss the meteoric rise of fintech, the verticals currently catching the eye of investors and entrepreneurs, and the major trends for fintech in 2021 and beyond.
