Join this high-profile event to explore what makes China’s fintech market so unique and develop business and investment partnerships with Chinese decision makers!
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.
