Quotes of the Week
Collaboration between the United States and the United Kingdom on financial services was boosted this week by the establishment of a Financial Innovation Partnership, which aims to build on and deepen bilateral engagement on emerging trends in financial services innovation.
John Glen, Economic Secretary to HM Treasury said:
“The United Kingdom and United States lead the world in financial services, and are at the cutting edge of innovative FinTech. By working more closely together through this new partnership we can help firms in both our countries to go even further to harness new technologies, share expertise and serve consumers.”

The annual P20 Conference is returning to London on the 3rd October 2019 and brings together top business leaders, government officials and regulators to discuss the future of payments globally.
Alastair Lukies CBE, P20 Global Ambassador, comments:
“London is home to 37% of Europe’s financial services industry. The capital is a hub for FinTech innovation, and a natural home for the P20 Conference. FinTech is about communities, and that is what the P20 creates; a community of leading experts from across the payments industry, all brought together with the unified goal of building a stronger, more robust and inclusive financial ecosystem”.
