techUK FinTech Campaign Week 2024

The week commencing 10th-14th June we asked our members to submit their thoughts and experties on the transformative power that technology has within the ever evolving Financial Services industry. 


Throughout the week we will be publishing blogs, vlogs, and case studies on our themes of digital transformation, facilitating the route to Open Finance, the role of digital assets, and utilising Open Banking.

Technology has enabled financial services organisations to digitalise the current systems of communications and infrastructure, and more is yet to come with the further developments of cloud, AI, and blockchain, to name a few. Such technologies have transformed the Financial Services industry with regards to its accessibility, security, and transparency.

To expand our understanding of the extensive capabilities that innovation can bring both in terms of opportunities and risk, our members have given us their exclusive insights.
