The UK’s evolving FinTech Ecosystem by Julian Wells
Experienced financial service and FinTech consultant Julian Wells, is the latest high-profile speaker in the Leeds Business School guest lecture.
When FinTech emerged, the term was initially applied to the technology employed at the back-end systems of established financial institutions. Since then, however, there has been a shift to more consumer-oriented services and therefore a more consumer-oriented definition. FinTech now includes different sectors and industries including education, retail banking, fundraising and non-profit, and investment management.
Director of Leeds-based strategy consultants Whitecap Consulting, the co-founders of FinTech North and FinTech West, with an involvement in the FinTech National Network, Julian understands that the UK is a global leader in FinTech and that the national ecosystem is fast evolving to create a powerful presence that stretches far beyond London. In this session he will explore the evolution of the FinTech sector and consider the shape it might take in the future
