About this event

The rise of fintech has dramatic implications across multiple areas of business and personal life. The impact of new technology on the centuries-old traditions of banking and finance goes far beyond the walls of the financial marketplace.

From disrupting established supply chains and enabling more even capital allocation, to enabling greater financial inclusion and contributing to the growth of a borderless, digital economy, its potential should not be underestimated. Much less the opportunity.
As the shake out between traditional banks and fintech innovators rattles on, the second New Statesman Fintech Summit discusses some of the important questions that need to be answered as the global digital economy enters a new, pivotal phase.

Join us for the second New Statesman Fintech Summit, where we will explore these issues and more with key players and leaders from the industry. Thought leaders and senior figures will present throughout the day to examine regulations, key trends and developments in the sector.
