Supporting UK FinTech: Accessing a Global Talent Pool

Innovate Finance has released Supporting UK FinTech: Accessing a Global Talent Pool, our latest research report in conjunction with WPI Economics. The report follows the call for input from the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) on the economic and social impacts of the UK’s exit from the European Union and the development of an immigration strategy that is aligned to a modern industrial strategy.

The report provides new insight on the scope of the UK FinTech sector which currently represents: 76,500 employees of whom 42% are from overseas (28% from EEA countries, and 14% from non-EEA countries).
