Time: 12:30 - 14:00
Join us on 26 February for the launch of the HM Treasury commissioned Fintech Strategic Review led by Ron Kalifa.
Over the past decade, the UK has undergone a fintech revolution – in jobs, innovation, improvements to people’s lives and in the country’s ability to compete on the global stage – and today is one of the leading global fintech hubs. The Kalifa Review will provide a clear strategy and delivery plan to ensure the UK can capitalise upon the opportunities fintech presents to create quality jobs and level up the country, increase financial inclusion and play a key part of “Global Britain”.
With particular thanks to Amadeus Capital, Deloitte, EY, Hogan Lovells, KPMG, SVC2UK and Tech Nation for their contribution and support on the Review.
