Commenting on the launch of this new initiative, Hamish Anderson, CEO of Money Mover said: “If the UK is to dominate fintech in the 21st century as we did financial services in the 20th, the industry, innovators and investors need to be aligned. At Money Mover we believe that Innovate Finance is the right forum for collaboration, transformation and success, and that is why we are honoured to be a part of this brand new initiative."
Chancellor George Osborne said: “Key to the government’s long term economic plan is cementing Britain’s position as the centre of global finance. It’s only by harnessing innovations in finance, alongside our existing world class knowledge and skills in financial services, that we’ll ensure Britain’s financial sector continues to meet the diverse needs of businesses and consumers here and around the globe, and create jobs and growth we all want to see in the future.”
