Fintech Pledge

The Fintech Pledge sets globally leading standards for the establishment of partnerships between the UK’s largest financial institutions and fintech firms.

As a world first, it will strengthen the UK’s financial ecosystem position by ensuring that partnerships between technology firms and financial institutions are conducted with renewed vigour by building upon industry leading transparency and communication.

The Fintech Pledge is part of a wider fintech strategy across the UK, and is an initiative of the Fintech Delivery Panel, supported by the UK Government and Tech Nation, to ensure that the UK is the best possible place to start and scale a financial services technology firm.
