- The UK Fintech Mission to Austria and Switzerland proved an excellent opportunity for UK Fintech companies looking to expand their business in the Swiss and Austrian markets.
WiseAlpha, the UK’s leading digital bond market platform, has successfully completed a UK Fintech Mission to Austria and Switzerland. WiseAlpha was one of thirty UK companies to present their FinTech offerings to Austrian and Swiss banks, insurance companies, asset managers and venture capital firms. The international event was organised by the Department for International Trade (a member of the FinTech Alliance Community) to give UK FinTech businesses the opportunity to grow their network and build their global presence.
The FinTech Alliance aims to bring together the biggest players in the UK’s Fintech ecosystem and to support the continued growth of the sector. Over 500 companies from across the UK have joined the Alliance, strengthening the regional collaboration between FinTech companies in different areas of the country.
The mission offered rising stars of the UK’s burgeoning tech scene a programme of networking, including the opportunity to connect with other UK FinTechs and to meet with potential investors on an international stage. The UK’s FinTech sector is currently experiencing record growth, with venture capital funding for UK tech firms reaching £10.1bn in 2019. Investment across the last 12 months surpassed growth of all other countries, including global leaders China and the US.
Rezaah Ahmad, CEO and founder of WiseAlpha, says: “Being selected to present at the UK Fintech Mission was an incredible way to kickstart the year. The FinTech industry is growing astronomically and attending this event has allowed us to meet some of the biggest names in FinTech, and to connect with a huge pool of potential investors. This is just the start of what is fast shaping up to be WiseAlpha’s biggest year to date. We’re determined to drive real innovation in the financial sector and to open up the lucrative world of corporate bonds to its widest ever audience. We have some incredible developments in the pipeline but for now all I can say is watch this space!”
