Scotland’s annual Fintech Festival is set for its sixth outing when it’s hosted in venues across the country later this year.

The three week-long event series takes place between September 21 and October 12 and includes the ‘Fintech Summit’ and the Scottish Fintech Awards.

The programme will bring together fintech leaders, innovators, and enthusiasts from the UK, and beyond, opening with the summit which will ‘set the tone’ for the rest of the events.

The summit will see leaders, entrepreneurs, and policymakers discuss the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities in fintech such as the impact of AI, quantum and much more.

As the festival draws to a close, the Awards will recognise the outstanding achievements and contributions made by individuals and organisations in the Scottish fintech cluster.

This event promises to be a ‘fitting conclusion, recognising the exceptional talent and innovation that drives Scotland’s fintech success.’

Throughout the festival, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in over 50 events that explore various aspects of fintech.

These events, hosted by leading fintech organisations and experts from across the UK, will address the key themes highlighted in the Fintech Research & Innovation Roadmap published by Fintech Scotland in 2022.

The Roadmap highlighted open finance, financial regulation, climate finance and payment as key priorities for the UK fintech sector. The festival aims to drive forward Scotland’s fintech agenda and support its continued growth and innovation.
