Deloitte platinum sponsors of the Innovate Finance Global Summit 2018
FinTech takes over London
Deloitte is proud to once again be the platinum sponsor of the Innovate Finance Global Summit 2018 (IFGS), taking place in London on 19 and 20 March.
As outlined in our ongoing analysis of the FinTech ecosystem, much of which has come via our work with the World Economic Forum, financial technology, or ‘FinTech’, continues to transcend borders, shake-up business models, drive the pace of innovation and create new applications for financial services customers.
It’s why Deloitte is so involved in FinTech and also why we are once again partnering with Innovate Finance on their annual, best-in-class Global Summit. Our sponsorship builds upon a strong partnership with Innovate Finance that’s been forged through collaboration on the Global FinTech Hub Federation and its report, Money Talks at London Tech Week and sharing expertise and resources to build FinTech in the UK.
With more than 2,000 people from across the global FinTech community descending on London, the FinTech capital of the world, the IFGS 2018 will provide a prestigious platform to explore the latest innovations in the industry, meet key ecosystem players and debate the challenges impacting the future of financial services. Get ready for two days of engaging sessions across the City, with a packed programme featuring immersion sessions, plenary speakers, workshops, demos, breakout sessions, panels, showcases and more.
Taking inspiration from the continued expansion of FinTech globally, the 2018 Summit will once again welcome the world’s leading innovators, institutions and investors driving the growth in the sector. Attracting outstanding speakers and partners, the IFGS 2018 provides invaluable access to FinTech influencers and offers unrivalled opportunities to network with industry insiders. Such was the popularity of the 2017 Summit that the 2018 edition will feature a larger programme of events, along with the chance to experience the technology defining the FinTech sector today in virtual reality, on-stage demos and exhibitor spaces.
In 2017, the IFGS featured:
