Event description

Description

The UK is considered a global capital for FinTech, with its FinTech sector generating £6.6bn in revenue and with that, established its world leading position in the market. China’s FinTech sector has grown rapidly with four out of the top 5 FinTech 100 being present in China. Both markets have a lot to offer and increasingly there is a need to collaborate in the FinTech sector between the UK and China. The problem in executing and driving results in the cross-border FinTech market and building the UK- China FinTech bridge is inherently simple, yet fundamental and that is a lack of communication on an individual corporate level, between trusted players in the market and the wider FinTech ecosystems in both markets.

The UK-China Fintech Alliance, an exclusive and vetted group of high-quality companies and leading industry practitioners, was formed to serves as a single-entry point to the FinTech market players where high-quality members can interact and communicate efficiently with each other. Since then, the Alliance has grown rapidly and attracted media attention as well, but most importantly, it has driven results as a collective of high-quality organizations and companies.

At our upcoming gathering on the 25th October, the focus will be on reviewing results that the UK-China Fintech Alliance has driven collectively as well as crystallizing the structure of the Alliance so that growth is managed effectively.
