Understanding the growth in FinTech

In the next of a series of specialist speed lectures from the University of Salford’s Business School we are looking at the FinTech sector. As one of the recent strongest areas of UK growth, the sector has become synonymous with Manchester as a centre of excellence in the North West. We interviewed Dr Jia Zhai, Lecturer in Finance and Economics at Salford Business School, to find out more about the subject.

The future of FinTech in Greater Manchester

The end of January saw pro-manchester organising a panel presentation and debate on the growing FinTech sector, hosted by the Manchester Metropolitan University’s Business School on Oxford Road in Manchester. Greater Manchester is already recognised as the FinTech capital of the North, and the local financial technology ecosystem and industry is evolving rapidly. The speed of growth means that, even within the city, many businesses are unaware of the scale of the sector, the barriers to growth and opportunities for new entrants to the market.
