Fuelling FinTech: The RISE of disruptive financial services

With the UK seeing the highest growth rate of FinTech Investment in Europe*, and several financial technology businesses setting up shop in Wales, it’s no surprise that the industry is being heavily backed by private investment and government.

Taking place at Barclays’ recently refurbished branch in Newport, next month’s Digital Tuesday takes a closer look at the emerging FinTech sector; examining how the application of technology in financial services is disrupting traditional business models and creating significant opportunities within the sector.

Matthew Bateman, Regional Digital Lead at Barclays will be talking about RISE: its global community for open innovation, designed to help shape, grow and revolutionise financial services.

Book your place now to gain valuable insights into how digital technologies can enhance their business as well as providing excellent networking with industry peers from across the region.
