FinTech Circle announces partnership with China

FinTech Circle, a UK-based community of entrepreneurs, investors and financial services professionals, has announced a strategic partnership with China’s Global FinTech Lab.

Announced at the Money 20/20 conference in Amsterdam, the partnership will see FinTech Circle and the Global FinTech Lab host the first FinTech Bridge Conference in London in late 2018 to help strengthen the ties between mainland China, Hong Kong and the UK. The conference will bring together finance and government leaders from both countries, including top FinTech VCs, banks, insurance companies and asset managers.

FinTech Circle will also launch its comprehensive range of FinTech Education Courses for the first time in China, in collaboration with the Fintech Academy of the Global Fintech Lab. The courses aim to upskill finance services professionals by providing expertise across all areas of FinTech innovation.

“The UK and China are two global FinTech hubs which have lots of things in common – a strong culture of entrepreneurship, an outstanding financial and technology talent pool, access to finance and a large customer base including some of the leading financial institutions globally,” said Susanne Chishti, chief executive of FinTech Circle.

Tong Cao, founder of the Global FinTech Lab, added: “We look forward to working with FinTech Circle to connect startups, investors, financial institutions and key stakeholders in the FinTech ecosystems of both China and UK, and to enable greater collaborations.”
