FinTech Mission to the UK 2015
UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) is proud to host a mission of US financial technology firms to London, the capital of financial technology in Europe, from 5-9 December 2015.
The mission will afford US firms the opportunity to visit the UK market and learn about the growing UK financial technology network, giving them the tools and connections to take their business global.

In total, the UK financial technology sector is valued at £20 billion and had £342 million investment in UK FinTech companies in 2014.
