FINTECH Bridge
China-UK Conference.

In the light of the latest circumstances relating to the Coronavirus, we have decided to postpone the conference to a later date.

Please register your interest to be notified when a new date is announced!

China’s fintech landscape differs from those in Europe and the US where the most advanced fintech firms usually focus on one vertical such as payments, wealth management and lending.

 

In China, however, most of the tech giants started with highly successful consumer platforms and then added payments and other financial services shortly thereafter. These companies have orchestrated their fintech ecosystems by leveraging vast amounts of data to refine their offerings.

 

FINTECH Bridge China-UK Conference will delve into this unique tech landscape and present the opportunities for organisations on both sides of the bridge to expand their business and build new relationships.
