Overview

This is applied through established financial services businesses, industry suppliers and new small and medium-sized entrepreneurial entrants to the market. Scotland has all the participants, track-record, components and environment required to capitalise on this new fusion of financial services and technology to develop a thriving Fintech ecosystem. In fact, there is an opportunity to establish the country as a top five global Fintech centre with an international reputation for data driven innovation and inclusive growth.

Becoming a leading global Fintech centre will require the creation of an even more integrated ecosystem focused on data driven innovation driving inclusive growth through the provision of funding, business support, infrastructure and talent development. This creates opportunities for NXDs to help drive rapid and sustainable growth in these businesses. This session will therefore explain the Fintech landscape, challenges for companies in the sector, and how NXDs can help drive growth.
