Innovate Finance is an industry organisation that will accelerate the UK's leading position in the global financial services sector, by directly supporting the next era of technology-led financial services innovators, whether they be a young start-up or an established industry player.
The body aims to be a single access point to the full financial services and technology ecosystem and – through our own innovation programmes and partnerships with other organisations – connects members to policymakers, regulators, investors, customers, educators, talent and key commercial partners (Including FCA Project Innovate, British Business Bank, TechUK and Open University).
Innovation is integral to maintaining the UK's reputation as a provider of world leading financial services. The Fintech sector is at the forefront of this drive to improve products and services for consumers and clients so the City of London Corporation is delighted to be working alongside Innovate Finance to accelerate its growth.
MARK BOLEAT, CHAIRMAN OF THE POLICY & RESOURCES COMMITTEE, CITY OF LONDON CORPORATION
