Burbidge, Chair of Tech City UK, said: “Along with the announcements of new regional FinTech envoys to be appointed and funding for DIT FinTech experts from the Autumn Statement, it’s brilliant to see that HM Treasury and HM Government more broadly are continuing to support the fast-growing FinTech sector.”

“I look forward to convening the new FinTech Delivery Panel in order to progress specific initiatives, and also that there will be a FinTech services hub to inform younger FinTech startups about relevant professional advisors. All of these new measures will undoubtedly add to the likelihood of the UK maintaining its position as the FinTech capital of the world.”

Tech City UK that it is “committed to an initial discovery phase for a Fintech Professional Services Hub” but said that the timings and shape of the hub will be announced once the discovery phase is complete.
