UK FinTech Week

Featuring The Innovate Finance Global Summit

19 - 23 April 2021
Virtual event

Here at Deloitte, we were again excited to be involved in this year's UK FinTech Week featuring the Innovate Finance Global Summit (IFGS 2021). The discussions, keynotes, workshops, presenters and attendees all showed why the UK is the most exciting place to be, in the FinTech world. We were especially pleased to be involved in panel discussions on levelling up, digital ID and inclusion as well as hosting workshops and roundtables. While we look forward to the 2022 event, hopefully in person, please take the opportunity to catch our panels, on demand.
