UK Prime Minister David Cameron Backs ‘Ambitious’ FinTech Manifesto

A new Fintech manifesto ‘UK FinTech 2020’ has been released as UK Prime Minister David Cameron voiced his support, leading a trade delegation of British FinTech leaders, including bitcoin wallet provider Blockchain, to South East Asia.


The manifesto, released by the independent membership association for the global FinTech (financial technology services) sector Innovate Finance, has some ambitious goals including securing London’s position as the world’s FinTech capital and creating 100,000 jobs.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron has expressed his support for the initiative:

This government wants the UK to be the leading FinTech centre in the world, that’s why, at the Summer Budget, we appointed a Special Envoy for this fast growing sector. I’m pleased that Innovate Finance’s manifesto has set such ambitious goals including the creation of 100,000 jobs. This will ensure we are a world leader in the development of financial services technologies.

Innovate finance’s members range from the most promising pre-seed startups to the world’s leading global corporations and cover a range of verticals. It aims to help lead the UK into being the undisputed center for fintech and innovation and has successfully received the support of the UK Government.
