As part of the trip, the team – including P20 Chairman, Peter Radcliffe – attended both the two-day Innovate Finance Global Summit 2017 conference and the one day U.K. International FinTech Conference. Among other dignitaries the Innovate Finance Conference included Alastair Lukies, UK Fintech Global Ambassador & Event Chair; Lawrence Wintermeyer, CEO; and David Beer, organizer of the Summit.
The U.K. International Fintech event included many of the U.K.’s leaders in business and finance, like: Simon Kirby, City Minister; Liam Fox, UK Secretary of State for International Trade; Eileen Burbidge, UK Treasury’s Special Envoy to FinTech; Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England; Alastair Lukies, UK FinTech Global Ambassador; and Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer. All of these individuals have been cornerstone members, and/or will play a vital role in the upcoming London P20 Conference.
Finally, the team had an opportunity to network at the Chancellor’s Dinner following the conference’s first day, hosted at the Mansion House – residence of the Lord Mayor, and visit Level 39 – a FinTech incubator in London’s Canary Wharf.
