Hogan Lovells forms part of new FinTech Strategy Group

Innovate Finance and City of London Corporation have today launched the FinTech Strategy Group (FSG) to help drive the success of the UK FinTech sector, inviting Hogan Lovells financial institutions partner Rachel Kent as a member.

The FSG will bring together senior leaders from across the industry including start-up and high growth FinTech businesses, institutional and banking partners, regulators and government officials.

The purpose of the FSG is to foster an open and collaborative dialogue on the future of UK FinTech. The Group will work to maintain the UK’s competitive FinTech advantage while driving innovation in financial services. It will also provide an industry-led, independent platform for government and regulators to engage with senior representatives from across the industry.

The Group will be 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.

Commenting on the FSG, Rachel Kent said:

"Collaboration is key to the growth and success of our constantly evolving industry, and the FSG provides the ideal forum to bring together minds with diversity of thought but a common goal. At Hogan Lovells we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of industry developments and to be able to contribute our knowledge and insights through the FSG is both an honour and a pleasure."

Charlotte Crosswell, CEO, Innovate Finance:

“We must continue to challenge ourselves to support and evolve the 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.”
