Fintech in Scotland: the response to Covid-19 and future opportunities and challenges.

23rd September 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

Event Navigation

Scotland was recognised in January 2020 for the strength and quality of its fintech cluster – just two months before Covid-19 hit hard and we went into lockdown.

How has the fintech sector responded to the challenges and opportunities of the pandemic and associated economic crisis?

How has it dealt with the rapid acceleration of the shift to a digital financial world? How did it help those people who found themselves in vulnerable financial situations? How did it seek to tackle the increasing challenge of online fraud?

Did the fintech sector seize the opportunities available? How are fintech companies large and small handling the challenges faced by all businesses as the economy contracts rapidly and we face the prospect of a deep recession?

Join a range of experts to discuss the future of fintech in Scotland. The event will include plenty of opportunities for your questions and comments.
