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 results of the report and Innovate Finance’s six adjoining policy principles aim to provide a foundation for policy makers, industry and academia to come together to develop a proportionate series of measures to mitigate the impact of uncertainty on our sector.
In coordination with our FinTech Strategy Group, we will build on these principles to develop further recommendations on the need for a balanced approach to accessing global talent and developing local skills, which will inform the MAC’s final review in Autumn 2018.
As part of the report release, Innovate Finance asked our members and contributors of the report to talk about their experiences recruiting and retaining top FinTech talent and the importance of continued support for the sector. You can read all their insights here and share your own using the #TalkFinTechTalent on Twitter.
