The current digital age brings with it new challenges and significant opportunities for the finance sector on especially in the Financial Technology Area.
FinTech has become a general term used for any technology applied to financial services, from improving existing systems to new entrants and new consumer products competing with or disrupting the traditional way business has been done.
There continues to be an exceptional level of worldwide investment to stimulate and develop new and relevant innovations in this sector.
The Digital Greenhouse and the States of Guernsey’s Commerce & Employment department are investing in supporting the development of the Island’s proposition in the FinTech sector.
This and other activity in this area by private businesses and professional service companies will continue to increase the potential volume of interest in what the Island is doing and who are the leading parties to engage with.
