Innovate Finance statement on UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s speech at the Bloomberg Global Business Forum 2018

We are encouraged by the UK Prime Minister’s speech today at the Bloomberg Business Forum in New York. Particularly on the promise to deliver a new immigration system ensuring businesses can continue to attract the brightest and the best to the UK. Innovate Finance believes it is vital to maintain the competitive advantage the UK has built in FinTech. Attracting international talent and developing our domestic skills pipeline are critical parts of that aim.

We outlined in our report, in response to the Migration Advisory Committee’s callout to industry, that as the post-Brexit migration system evolves, it must do so with flexibility and pragmatism. The PM’s pro-business and collaborative statements today go some way to support this approach.
