“2020 has been a landmark year for fintech. The pandemic has accelerated the pace of transformation at an unprecedented rate and, at the same time, recent scandals around governance have threatened the reputation of the entire sector. We’re reaching an inflection point in fintech’s maturity and so, as we near the end of this tumultuous year, it’s never been more important for the community to coral together and define its future,” said Laurence Coldicott, FinTech Connect’s Director of Content.

“Entering its sixth year, Fintech Connect’s 2020 virtual edition provides a platform to do just that, uniting colleagues from every timezone without the expense of travel or registration fees,” says Coldicott.

Content sessions will belong to one of four streams, Digital Transformation, PayTech, Blockchain and RegTech, which will deliver a comprehensive, in-depth examination of the current state and future direction of FinTech across the world.

The 2020 edition of FinTech Connect will be held virtually on 30 November – 4 December and will bring together 8,000+ of the fintech community to share best practice, showcase new products and solutions and shape financial services of the future.
