Innovate Finance announces EY, CNBC and City AM as platinum and strategic media partners for its FinTech Global Summit
March 3rd, 2016, London: Innovate Finance, the independent membership organisation for global FinTech, today announced EY has become a platinum partner for the Innovate Finance Global Summit on Monday 11th April 2016.
EY, which is also an official member of Innovate Finance, will be part of a collaborative partnership that will drive awareness for both organisations in their efforts to support the global FinTech sector and the burgeoning startup community.
The firm is the first of the ‘Big Four’ to become a member of Innovate Finance and is collaborating on major research projects on emerging FinTech trends such as open payments, financial inclusion, regtech and blockchain technology. It has also kickstarted a FinTech secondment programme that places EY members of staff into Innovate Finance member firms for three-month periods to help accelerate innovation programmes and startup growth.
EY recently published a report that ranked a UK first amongst the world’s seven leading FinTech hubs, from Silicon Valley to Hong Kong. EY compared the availability of talented staff, access to investment, the nature of government and regulatory policy, and the demand for FinTech services.
Innovate Finance is also proud to announce that the world’s biggest business news network — CNBC and the City of London’s premier newspaper, City AM, have become strategic media partners for the global summit. The two media publications will be reporting on the day of the event as well as promoting the summit in the run up to the big day through curated content and interviews.
