Fintech leaders will gather in Glasgow next week for the first ever FinTech National Network Symposium.

The symposium on 10 October will bring together the UK’s various fintech bodies at the University of Strathclyde Technology and Innovation Centre which has played a leading global role in developing fintech skills and innovation.

The hosting of the symposium is seen as further recognition of Glasgow as a major global fintech cluster as part of the broader Innovation District development.

The symposium builds on the announcement earlier this year by Innovate Finance, FinTech Scotland and FinTech North to establish the FinTech National Network to foster collaboration between the bodies and provide valuable connections to amplify their collective support for fintech enterprises.

Over recent months the network has expanded to include FinTech Wales, FinTech Northern Ireland and FinTech West.

Also attending next week’s event will be the Financial Conduct Authority, Scottish Development International, the Department for International Trade, the Treasury and the Fintech Alliance. They will be joined by leading fintech entrepreneurs.
