FinTech Future


FinTechNZ and The Department for International Trade (DIT) supported a delegation to travel to the UK in September 2019, assisting New Zealand and Australian fintech companies to explore trade and investment opportunities in the UK. The delegates attended the Lendit conference and other curated sessions with investors, corporates, fellow fintech companies, regulators and service providers.
