Mark Taylor, Chief Executive of the QEII Centre, said: “We are pleased to provide the main stage for London’s Fintech Week 2018. London is a global hub for technology and fintech, and I can think of no better place for the key influencers and decision-makers in the industry to come together and not only discuss, but create, the future of fintech.”
