3 May 2019

Funding Options’ Managing Director Ryan Edwards-Pritchard attended and spoke at this year’s Innovate Finance Global Summit.

The event took place on 29 and 30 April and brought together 300 speakers on 5 stages and 2000 attendees from the FinTech and banking community across the globe. The summit provides a platform for discussions about the latest innovations in FinTech and the industry’s key issues, from diversity to regulations to talent or technology.

In his keynote Philip Hammond, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, reaffirmed that the UK will remain a leader in FinTech, while Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, highlighted the opportunities emerged by innovation in financial services.

Ryan was on the panel Supporting Little Big Business to discuss how FinTech can support small businesses in the UK and the innovation that has emerged to help business owners tackle day-to-day challenges.

Ryan comments:

“IFGS has been a key event in my calendar for a number of years due to the great crowd it draws in and 2019 was no exception. The two days were a great opportunity to network and meet a range of people from start-ups to banks to policymakers, as well as hear from experts on a range of topics.

I was delighted to be part of the panel on SME finance this year and discuss the issues facing the small business community with some of the great minds in the fintech space. Looking forward to next year already!”
