FINTECH Bridge to China Conference.

Get a head start when entering the Chinese fintech market. See why China is the most attractive market in the world, with the FINTECH Bridge to China Conference.

The only conference dedicated to fintech investments and business trade deals between Greater China and the UK.

Why China?

China is already leading the world in many areas of fintech, and FINTECH Circle’s deep relationships with Chinese banks, tech giants, fintech leaders, HNW investors and venture capitalists can help you navigate China’s digital financial services ecosystem.

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, tech giants are the leaders such as Ant Financial, Tencent and JD.com. These companies 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. Chinese tech giants not only market directly to consumers, but provide white-label fintech solutions to smaller financial institutions inside and outside the country, leveraging the China Belt and Road Initiative.

How do I build my organization in China?

Hint: It’s almost impossible without help.

You can’t do it alone

Relationships are important everywhere, in China even more so—you need to be trusted by your partners, and this takes time and effort.

Leverage our already-existing, powerful network that we’ve built over many years, to help you grow your own network within China.

We do the due diligence on the best service providers

No matter if you are looking for co-working spaces in Chinese fintech hubs, the best lawyers, translators, marketing agencies to help you set up your WeChat social media presence or work with Chinese service providers. We conduct due diligence in Mandarin and provide you with impartial advice on who to work with.
