Welcome to the Home of FinTech.
UK FinTech Week and IFGS are back!

Monday 19th – Friday 23rd April, 2021

Showcasing UK Innovation in Financial Services on a Global Stage

Introducing UK FinTech Week featuring IFGS 2021, the world’s-leading FinTech Week and Global Summit combined. Returning in April as a brand new hybrid concept, expect five days of world-class content delivered by some of the biggest names in finance, government and tech.

FinTech founders, bank ex-cos, technologists, entrepreneurs, investors, regulators, policy-makers, politicians, academics and media from around the world will come together to learn, discuss, debate and network. Don’t miss your opportunity to be a part of the conversation and showcase your brand to the world. 

This dedicated week is the best opportunity to discover why the UK is and will remain the world’s preeminent financial services hub, packing a year’s worth of knowledge, insight and engagement into just five days.

Sponsorship of UK FinTech Week featuring IFGS will enable your organisation to brand itself against a global platform from which you will achieve both national and international reach and build your brand and business. 

“The UK is a world-leading and unique ecosystem for FinTech. It has deep reserves of entrepreneurial and tech talent, progressive regulators and policy-makers, steadfast financial institutions, investor and professional expertise, and a supportive government. All of this combined ensures it will remain the capital of FinTech”
