FinTech monthly – how can Government help grow our fintech ecosystem?

Today marks the day of a new government for the UK. Well sort of… The Tories look to have a majority, Labour seem to have been wiped out in Scotland and the Lib Dems don’t have a lot to shout about.

I was asked in the month’s fintech monthly video what advice I would give to a new government to help grow our fintech ecosystem. See:

If we want to build a world beating fintech ecosystem here in the UK (and London specifically), then we have to keep on working on making it faster to get regulated, easier to employ people (keeping immigration streamlined) and generally keeping the¬†bureaucracy to a minimum. I think that the country’s doing a good job on this front already but we need to keep up’ing the game (our global competition will certainly be doing that).
