Virtual fintech trade mission to stimulate economic growth and jobs in UK and Australia.

Newfound has announced the first virtual fintech trade mission between the UK and the APAC region since the coronavirus shutdown. The mission aims to open export markets, create new jobs, and scale up opportunities for the fintech sector and the broader digital economy across both regions.

The virtual trade mission has won wide support across both public and private sectors with launch partners including British Australia Society, CCgroup, CO:CUBED, Edelman, FinTech Australia, FinTechNZ, Global Victoria, Level 39, London & Partners, New South Wales Government, Stone and Chalk and Tech Nation.

Newfound launches the Market Missions programme with a free event on July 15, opened by Lord Mayor of London William Russell, and sessions featuring leading figures who will talk about the challenges and opportunities for fintechs scaling to the UK in the COVID era.

Speakers at the UK event on 15 July include:

  • MC: Isabel Woodford, fintech journalist at Sifted
  • William Russell - Lord Mayor, City of London
  • Martyn Holman, Augmentum Fintech
  • Anton Ruddenklau, KPMG
  • Caroline Plumb OBE, Fluidly
  • Karen Sandhu, London & Partners
  • Mike Jackson, Tech Nation
  • Amy French, Level39
  • Andrew Wilde, Edelman

July’s UK event will be followed by a two-week virtual digital trade mission to Australia on September 7 and then a UK equivalent commencing on September 14. The programme, featuring 100+ in-market experts, will attract high growth fintech firms from the UK, EMEA and APAC looking to expand to these markets.

The UK’s fintech sector currently generates £4.8 billion in investment[1] and employs over 76,000 people[2].
