What to Expect

Join us for the Innovate Finance Global Summit 2018 on Monday 19th – Tuesday 20th of March and be immersed in the ideas shaping global FinTech.

Financial technology has evolved into a powerful global movement that has brought together entrepreneurs, technology giants and big banks to develop ideas and innovations that can harness the power of the digital age to create better, sustainable, financial services for more people of different backgrounds and for future generations to come.

IFGS 2018 will convene the global FinTech community to the FinTech capital of the world: London and take over the historic Guildhall and Square Mile. Taking inspiration from the expansion of FinTech globally, the summit will welcome the world’s leading lights, from innovators, institutions and investors to policy makers, regulators and international trade bodies.

“Innovate Finance Global Summit is the main event for those wanting to know what the future of finance looks like from those creating it.”
– Chris Skinner, Founder, The Finanser


“Innovate Finance’s Global Summit has become one of the flagship events in London’s FinTech calendar. Attended by the world’s most influential entrepreneurs and investors.”
– Jeff Kelisky, CEO, Seedrs

“IFGS 2018 is bringing together FinTech’s key stakeholders to explore, challenge and debate the future of finance. I am looking forward to sharing my perspective on the changing environment and the areas to watch in 2018.”
– Stephen Lemon, Co-Founder, Currency Cloud


“The Global Summit is about celebrating the UK’s leadership in FinTech. Exciting people, with new ideas, coming together to explore and debate what happens next in our industry.”
– Anne Boden, CEO, Starling Bank

IFGS 2018 Campus


We are taking FinTech across London’s Square Mile with our Global Summit Campus and transforming the city into a FinTech festival for the first time.

The IFGS Campus includes all the Global Summit’s key locations, the historic Guildhall, the neighbouring Grocers’ Hall and Mansion House. Alongside our partner hotels, the IFGS Campus also features local bars, restaurants and cafes, all offering our delegates fantastic deals on drinks, meals and evening activities to ensure you experience the very best of the City.

Financial technology, or FinTech, continues to transcend borders, shake up business models and drive the pace of innovation. It’s why Deloitte is fostering growth and collaboration across the financial services industry through their partnership with Innovate Finance.

 Their sponsorship of the Global Summit is just one of the ways Deloitte is working with Innovate Finance to promote greater change and a better financial future.

IFGS 2018 kick starts the official UK FinTech Week. Alongside IFGS the week will feature events by HM Treasury, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and London Stock Exchange (LSE) and will convene finance, technology and innovation enthusiasts from across the world to London.
