London is arguably the leading hub for FinTech globally, and the UK market is a natural fit for NZ FinTech companies looking to expand, given its size and similarity in terms of culture, legal system etc.

We believe that now is a great time for NZ FinTech companies with global solutions to connect to the UK market, especially as the UK is looking outwards in the context of Brexit and the FinTech sector in New Zealand is growing at a rapid rate.

The delegation is also timed to coincide with London FinTech Week (July 6-13) – a series of conferences, exhibitions, workshops, hackathons, meetups and parties centred at the QEII Centre in Westminster, but other with events take placing across the City of London, Canary Wharf and “Tech City.” We can expect 600-1,000 conference delegates per day from over 50 countries and 3,000 – 5,000 participants in events throughout the week.

FinTech NZ is proud to be running this delegation, as a core part of our agenda to Connect, Promote and Advance the FinTech ecosystem in New Zealand. While we are in the UK we will be exploring the opportunity to discuss the FinTech relationship between NZ and the UK from a trade perspective.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Events include:
