London Stock Exchange welcomed UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and their New York FinTech Mission to the UK

Today London Stock Exchange welcomed UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) and their New York FinTech Mission to the UK. Seven of the top financial technology firms from the New York Consular Region were selected from a competitive pool by a panel of experts in US financial technology. The mission will highlight the innovative technologies emerging from across the US while also promoting the UK as a destination for FinTech investment.

The mission will take place during the Innovate Finance Global Summit (IFGS) at Guildhall. At IFGS, firms will have the opportunity to demo their products, meet with thought-leaders in the UK tech ecosystem, and connect with potential investors and end-users of their services. In addition to the conference, companies will network with industry experts and commercial contacts indispensable to international growth, as well as learn about the steps needed to expand their growing businesses into the United Kingdom.

This is the first New York FinTech mission promoting inward investment into the UK. Danny Lopez, Director General Trade & Investment, USA and Consul General New York, said of the mission:
“Through an intensive four-day round of meetings, networking, media training, and pitching, I believe we can build strong connections between the leaders of the New York’s FinTech sector and the entrepreneurs and businesses of the UK. In demonstrating New York’s FinTech talent, this inward mission will showcase many exciting expansion opportunities into the UK’s tech sector, and reinforce the UK’s reputation as the FinTech capital of Europe.”
