Strengthening the UK’s position as a
global leader in the future of financial services

What is the Fintech Delivery Panel?

The Fintech Delivery Panel was established to enhance the UK’s position as a global leader in the future of financial services. Supported by HM Treasury and powered by Tech Nation, the Panel develops collaborative initiatives to strengthen the UK fintech ecosystem, help fintechs achieve scale, and create an innovative environment for further developments to the benefit of consumers. 

The Fintech Delivery Panel achieves its goals by bringing together stakeholders from across the ecosystem including financial services, fintech, investors, technology, regulators, policymakers and think tanks. More details about our Vision and Workplan can be found here.

The Fintech ecosystem

Fintech is a competitive strength for the UK economy. Building on the UK’s historic expertise in financial services, today’s fintechs are innovating in everything from open banking to insurtech, regtech, payments and more – and there is still huge potential for growth.

In 2019 UK fintechs raised £4bn, making fintech the largest tech sub-sector for investment in the UK.  UK fintechs make up nearly half of all fintech unicorns across Europe (fintechs valued over $1bn).
