    Keynote power panel: The race to the top – The bid for post-BREXIT fintech

     

    The United Kingdom is scheduled to leave the European Union on 29th March 2019. In the interim, the
    leaders of the UK’s fintech industry will need to assess the likelihood of UK’s capital city retaining its financial
    services dominance over its European counterparts and or whether the threat of tariff-imposed UK-EU trade
    and a marked cutback in investment or lending appetite could affect the race to dethrone the city.
    The panel will feature senior representatives from three of the biggest financial centres in Europe setting out
