The UK FinTech industry is evolving, currently home to over 1,600 FinTech firms and bearing witness to an increasingly sophisticated FinTech ecosystem as start-ups and established operators step up their collaboration efforts.​

Interventions on the future of regulation, including the FCA’s Open Finance initiative and the Bank of England’s Future of Finance report, show there is a willingness to consider how best to support innovation.​

Our report, produced in collaboration with TheCityUK and with the input of over 20 industry leaders draws on interviews with more than 20 individuals holding senior positions in UK, US and European FinTechs, financial institutions as well as UK and US regulators.
