The UK is home to some of the brightest minds in the Fintech sector. It is a hive of innovation that is starting to deliver consumer services which challenge conventional thinking about the role and function of traditional service providers.
During the last few years we have seen customers develop ever-increasing expectations when it comes to digital services. People are demanding engaging content with useful and simple functionality which delivers a great user-experience. And it is the new entrants into the marketplace, the disrupting Fintechs, who appear to be most effective at meeting this need at present. Start-ups also have the advantage of agility and speed. And the impact of the rapidly evolving Fintech community should not be underestimated.
Although we are one of the biggest companies in the world, Experian’s own pioneering application of data, analytics and technology plays an important role in finding new innovative solutions too – from helping consumers understand and improve their financial situations, to supporting the growth of businesses, managing risk and protecting against fraud.
Now we’re looking to discover and support a new generation of innovators and entrepreneurs who will change the future of finance. That’s why we’re so delighted to be working with Tech City UK on the FinTech4All competition.
The Experian Spotlight Award is designed to recognise a particularly outstanding concept, product or service from all those who enter the contest. It’s our intention to build the award package with the people who win it, depending on what they need – whether that’s mentoring, advice, access to our own expertise, or something else. It’s a hugely exciting project and it’s going to be really interesting to see what kind of original ideas emerge.
