As easy as ABC? Why ESG must be at the heart of Scotland’s fintech future
22nd September 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
What exactly are Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals – and why are they so important to Scotland’s fintech future?
The webinar will open by taking the temperature of the fintech sector in Scotland, and discuss how the challenges thrown up by the pandemic, and their impact. It will then examine why ESG is so important to banks and investors looking to buy or invest in fintechs – and look at examples of fintech companies that have put ESG goals at the heart of everything they do.
What are the global market opportunities for those Scottish fintechs who really embrace ESG in a meaningful way – and how can their work help tackle financial exclusion and give consumers what they want?
Join our panel of experts to discuss how ESG can shape an even brighter future for Scotland’s booming fintech sector.
