FinTech Awards London, designed to recognise, attract and invest in the UK capital’s fintech talent, has unveiled the shortlist for this year’s Awards.
The Awards, hosted by finance recruitment provider Recruit 121, will bring together leading innovators and digital experts together in an evening of celebration in London this July. EY has also been confirmed as the Awards principal sponsor.
The awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of fintech professionals and companies in London and recognise the significant contribution made by the fintech sector to both the London and wider UK economies.
Winners will be revealed at a celebratory awards night at The Underglobe – situated beneath the iconic Globe theatre – in London on Wednesday 13 July 2022.
Matt Hyde, managing director at FinTech Awards London, said: “The response from fintech professionals across London has been excellent, with impressive nominations received across the 12 categories. Our vision – to recognise, attract and celebrate the fintech talent – is core to what we are doing.
“These Awards will place the spotlight fully on the emerging and established tech companies and entrepreneurs who are helping millions of customers with technology enabled financial products. We are excited to find new and existing talent in London and provide a platform to showcase them in London, the UK and beyond.”
“We’re delighted to be sponsoring the FinTech Awards, showcasing the very best talent from across the capital – congratulations to all those shortlisted,” added Chris Woolard, head of UK FinTech at EY and chair of the Global Regulatory Network.
“Fintech is one of London’s – and indeed the country’s – great success stories and the talent the UK has fostered has led to many of the innovations and developments that are transforming the financial services industry globally. We look forward to celebrating the incredible efforts and achievements of some of London’s top fintech professionals and know it will be a special evening.”
While, Charlotte Crosswell OBE, chair, Open Banking and Chair of the judging panel, said: “London is recognised as one of the main fintech capitals, not just of Europe but globally. It therefore makes total sense to spotlight and celebrate the talent we have here. It’s fantastic to see so many entries for FinTech Awards London in its inaugural year, highlighting the breadth and depth of talent and the culture of innovation in the city. Congratulations to all those that have been shortlisted – we’re excited to get to meet all of you for the final judging sessions in June. As judges we definitely have our work cut out.”
