Financial Services Council

techUK's Financial Services Council provides guidance and direction to the work undertaken across the Financial Services & Payments Programme, its constituent groups and work streams.

The Council is made up of the chairs and co-chairs of the Programme's working groups and other representatives from techuk member companies who have key expertise and a strong interest in long-term policy aims for the financial services sector. The Council meets on a quarterly basis to establish the key areas of focus for the working groups, set aims for advocacy and thought leadership work, provide input on seminars and high-level debates and ensure coherence across the programme as a whole.

As well as providing guidance and direction for the Programme, the Council members chair meetings held under their particular working groups from a neutral industry perspective.
