Join Us for Scotland’s Biggest Fintech Event
With just over one month to go, DIGIT is gearing up for its sixth annual Fintech Summit, hosted at Edinburgh's Dynamic Earth on the 25th and 26th of September.
The two-day summit will explore the rapid evolution of the financial services sector; ranging from disruption within Scotland's startup community to ongoing tech developments at established financial institutions.
DIGIT's 2018 Fintech Summit saw more than 400 delegates in attendance over the two days, exploring and discussing current trends and developments.
Scotland's national strategy to establish itself as a global fintech leader will also be an area of key importance at the 2019 Fintech Summit - exploring funding, collaboration and the country's ongoing efforts to boost digital skills.
Outside of London, Scotland boasts the UK's most complete financial services sector with world-class capabilities in banking, investment management, asset servicing and a flourishing technology startup scene. The financial services sector also employs more than 80,000 people across Scotland.
Speaking at Fintech 18, Finance Secretary Derek Mackay said: "The sector is, and has always been, of huge importance for Scotland, and that will continue.
"It is an area in which we've got a longstanding reputation and are rightfully recognised as world leaders. That will continue in spite of the uncertainties of Brexit."
