The rivalry between New York and London for FinTech dominance is an interesting one. However, there’s no mistake that London is the most important and influential FinTech hub in Europe.
Here are a few stats to back up that claim:
▪ 53% of Europe’s FinTech deals and 69% of its total tech funding took place in the UK and Ireland, with London leading the way.
▪ London is at the epicentre of a boom in technology firms that will create an additional 46,000 jobs over the next ten years. FinTech companies in Shoreditch’s ‘Silicon Roundabout’ and Level 39 in Canary Wharf are fast becoming the places to work for financial technologists.
If you’re a London based FinTech company, start up or candidate; we’d love to chat with you about the exciting things happening in your city. Anna is our European/UK based contact and she’s on the same time zone as London.
