Innovate Finance and City of London Corporation have appointed Previse co-founder and CEO, Paul Christensen to its FinTech Strategy Group (FSG) which aims to drive the success of the world-leading UK fintech sector.
The group fosters open and collaborative dialogue on the future of UK fintech and works to maintain the UK’s competitive fintech advantage, while driving innovation in financial services. It provides an industry-led, independent platform for government and regulators to engage with senior representatives from across the industry.
Launched in March 2018, the FSG brings together senior leaders from across the industry including start-up and high growth fintech businesses, institutional and banking partners, regulators and government officials.
The Group is chaired by Iain Anderson, Executive Chairman of Cicero Group. The Vice-Chairs are Catherine McGuinness, Chair of Policy Resources at City of London Corporation and Ron Kalifa, Executive Director of Worldpay.
The UK is the best place in the world to run a financial technology company. It has a unique combination of finance and machine learning expertise along with a concentration of corporate headquarters. That’s why Previse, like so many fintech companies, selected the UK as our headquarters. The sector is already booming, but it is still early days and there is still huge untapped potential in UK fintech. I am excited to be involved with this important group and helping play our part in ensuring that the UK continues to lead the way in financial technology for years to come.Previse co-founder and CEO, Paul Christensen
We must continue to challenge ourselves to support and evolve the UK fintech industry. We look forward to drawing on our wide membership base to work on issues and provide industry-led solutions while simultaneously identifying areas for policy recommendations.Charlotte Crosswell, CEO of Innovate Finance
