Leeds Building Society renew Strategic Partnership with FinTech North
FinTech North is delighted to announce that we will continue to work with Leeds Building Society as one of our Strategic Partners in 2024.
Leeds Building Society (LBS), who need no introduction as one of the best-known financial services institutions in the UK, first started working in partnership with FinTech North at the end of 2022. Our Strategic Partnership encompassed a suite of joint activity including hosting the Leeds FinTech Report Launch 2023 and headline sponsorship of the 2023 Leeds Conference including a keynote presentation focussed on partnerships in FinTech.
Leeds Building Society is driven by its purpose to put homeownership within reach of more people, and by working with FinTech North and the Northern FinTech community, aims to bring cutting-edge thought leadership and technology together to help impact issues such as home-ownership and vulnerability, amongst many others.
The partnership marks the Society’s ongoing engagement with the FinTech sector and the continuation of a collaborative relationship to find innovative solutions to key customer needs which achieve its purpose of putting home ownership within reach of more people, generation after generation.
Paul Braithwaite, Commercial Development Lead, Leeds Building Society, said: “Putting homeownership within reach of more people, generation after generation, is the driver behind everything we do at Leeds Building Society. By supporting the development of, and working with FinTechs, we are able to accelerate our purpose and support innovative developments across the Financial Services ecosystem, benefitting our current and future members. We’re delighted to continue to partner with FinTech North, after a successful first year of our strategic partnership.”
Joe Roche, Engagement Manager, FinTech North, said: “We’re so happy to be working once again with the team at Leeds Building Society. They are highly collaborative and thought-leading when it comes to our sector, so we’re incredibly grateful for their support and involvement.
LBS bring a brilliant perspective to our FinTech community, those ideas and challenges they work on daily are really valuable when brought to our collective attention, and contribute to the overall success of our thriving ecosystem.”
