Catherine McGuinness - Policy Chairman at the City of London Corporation commenting on the City of London’s FinTech Partnership with the High Commission of India, which will revolve around hosting delegations, providing practical support and advocacy and regulatory inputs, said: 
“This partnership is the latest chapter in a long and fruitful relationship between the City of London Corporation and High Commission of India… The UK is a world leader in FinTech and by some estimates home to around 1,600 FinTech companies… With cash accounting for most transactions in India, and around one-fifth of the population still unbanked, I look forward to seeing how UK expertise can help accelerate the digital revolution.”
