What to Expect in 2019
The most anticipated global FinTech event of the year is back! Now in its 5th year the annual Innovate Finance Global Summit (IFGS) is once again taking over London and the historic Guildhall for two days – Monday 29th – Tuesday 30th April.
FinTech has changed how we look at financial services. It is shaping how the next generation will interact and think about finance. Catalysed by the financial crash 10 years ago, it has evolved into a powerful global movement driven by companies delivering ideas that harness the power of the digital age to create better, sustainable services for a more diverse community.
IFGS will convene the global FinTech community to the FinTech capital of the world: the UK. By showcasing the very best of industry and the global and cross-sector nature of financial innovation, it will be the definitive event for FinTech in 2019.
"IFGS one of the few places that I have seen where at the high level, you get the real decision makers coming together to really think about what is next for the industry."
"It is a remarkable melting pot of the latest thinking and future direction."
"IFGS is all about innovation and technology re-imagining financial services and Intel is proud to be a sponsor of the event."
