Launching at FinTech Connect 2021 – FINTECH Circle and ITN Productions Industry News will be co-creators of a news-style programme exploring the latest innovations, insights, solutions and future trends in the fintech sector.
Global investment in financial technology has exploded in recent years. Fintech now makes up a multi-billion dollar industry. It is estimated that in 2018 $112 billion was invested in fintech companies(1) and 40 million people worldwide are using a form of cryptocurrency with the global market expected to reach $57 million by 2025(2).
Responsible Fintech will offer unique insights into the fintech sector and the future of cash and will aim to demystify the often, confusing subject of cryptocurrencies and blockchain. In the lead up to COP26, the programme will also explore the impact the fintech sector is having on the race to net zero and the sustainability agenda, from the role of banks and insurance companies, ESG, conscious consumer spending and green finance.
Anchored by an ITN Productions presenter, the programme will highlight best practices and knowledge within the sector, shine a spotlight on significant contributions to societal and global advancements and showcase examples of the most innovative fintech firms, financial companies and cutting-edge technologies leading the change of financial services.
Launching December 2021, Responsible Fintech will combine key sector interviews, informative news items and sponsored editorial profiles from leading organisations. The programme will form part of an extensive communications campaign featuring FINTECH Circle members and professional partners.
This programme follows a successful launch of The Future of Fintech, the first co-production by FINTECH Circle and ITN Productions in 2020. For more information visit The Future of Fintech page.
Nina Harrison-Bell, Head of Industry News at ITN Productions said “We are delighted to be working once again in partnership with FINTECH Circle to make a second programme following the rise of the fintech sector. We hope the programme will demonstrate the importance of the industry to future society and encourages debate and knowledge sharing amongst both leaders within the profession as well as non-specialists.”
Susanne Chishti, CEO of FINTECH Circle added “Nothing is more important than rebuilding our economy in a sustainable way post pandemic. The Fintech sector has a great responsibility to create a greener finance sector and to innovate using new technologies such as AI and distributed ledger technologies. The “Responsible Fintech” programme will tell the stories of leading startups, scaleups and established companies who are pushing the boundaries to make the world a better place while also highlighting unstoppable trends in crypto-currencies, digital assets and tokenization and how consumers and businesses can participate and benefit from these developments. We are so delighted to be working with the brilliant ITN Productions team again after a very successful first programme collaboration in 2020.”
