Innovate Finance Global Summit 2017

FinTech takes over London for a special two-day event you cannot miss!

Innovate Finance Global Summit (IFGS), the world’s biggest celebration of achievement in FinTech, happens on April 10th – 11th 2017 across the City of London.

The annual event is the most prestigious conference for the financial technology industry, a platform that convenes the world’s global institutions together with startups, policy makers and investors to share ideas and solutions to the challenges facing financial services.

As the FinTech sector continues to cross borders, shake up business models and create new applications, Innovate Finance brings together the people making things happen at IFGS 2017.

This year the global FinTech community is welcomed to the FinTech capital of the world.

In the wake of the EU referendum decision and the US election results, 2017 will be a year of significant transition and transformation that will reshape political landscapes and the global economy.

With worries about a ‘hard’ Brexit and its repercussions to the UK banking and FinTech sectors, coupled with the election of a US president that favors protectionism over free trade, how will governments, big banks, investors and entrepreneurs – as well as markets and economies- respond to a new era of uncertainty?

Innovate Finance’s Global Summit 2017 will address the challenges and opportunities that this period of change presents and the major implications for financial services and the FinTech sector. The event will bring together representatives from global FinTech hubs to discuss their activities and vision for the sector.
