Industry experts weigh in on which, if any, of Europe’s fintech hubs might rise to prominence in the aftermath of Brexit, as the AltFi Global Summit in Amsterdam looms.
London, a financial services haven with good access to talent and a highly progressive regulator, has long been referred to as a global capital of the fintech sector. But since the UK voted to leave the European Union, commentators have become nigh on paranoid about the possibility of London losing its much-vaunted fintech crown. On November 7th, for the first time, the AltFi Global Summit will come to Continental Europe. Hosted at the Het Sieraad building in De Baarjes region of Amsterdam, the event will feature many of the biggest names from Europe’s rapidly growing online lending and digital banking sectors, including the likes of Zopa, Klarna, Revolut, Younited Credit, Spotcap and auxmoney. Among a host of other topics, speakers from these firms will offer their thoughts on the impact of Brexit within the European fintech landscape.
