admin / 14th March 2018
Henri Murison, Chief Executive of the Northern Powerhouse Partnership, has been announced as one of the keynote speakers at each of the three forthcoming FinTech North conferences.
FinTech North, the Northern Powerhouse’s pre-eminent FinTech conference expects to attract 800 attendees across events in Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester.
Henri Murison, Chief Executive of the Northern Powerhouse Partnership, will join other speakers including representatives from the CBI, FCA and Innovate Finance as well as Chris Sier the Treasury’s FinTech Envoy in the opening session.
“Here in the Northern Powerhouse we have longstanding expertise in financial services, and we are home to digital disrupters and those who have embraced innovation like First Direct has for customer service and Yorkshire Bank with B.
The Northern Powerhouse Independent Economic Review predicts substantial growth in employment in digital in every decade up to 2050, alongside growth in financial and professional services, contributing to the overall 850,000 extra jobs the North can create by transforming our economy by 2050.
FinTech is playing its part in driving the North’s ambition, from Atom bank in County Durham to Barclays Bank’s digital capability in Cheshire. The Northern Powerhouse is uniquely well positioned equally for support start up’s, drawing on support from those like North Invest, alongside seeing further investment in established financial services providers based on our digital capability – both sides of the Pennines.”

“FinTech North was originally setup to help support and develop the burgeoning FinTech sector in the North. Our first ever event was in Leeds but we now have events across the Northern Powerhouse with even more events and locations planned for the future. We believe that the work that Henri and the Northern Powerhouse Partnership are undertaking is vital for growth and the success of both the region and the UK as a whole. We’re very grateful to Henri and look forward to his contribution to what looks like a really exciting agenda for the events.”
