Visit to Canada and USA

 

The City of London Corporation is recruiting delegates from the Financial Services sector (including advanced UK FinTechs and InsurTechs) to join us for a series of meetings, networking events and much more in Canada and the USA. The visit aims to; promote the UK’s innovation in Financial Services, identify specific opportunities for UK business, and support increased trade and investment between the UK and North America in Financial Services.

We are currently finalising the visit agenda which is being shaped with the UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) and local partner organisations in North America.

Whilst the visit will focus on Financial Services and FinTech more broadly, we expect there to be an increased focus on Insurance and Financial Exchanges in Chicago and on Payments in Atlanta.

Ideal candidates are those who are actively looking to enter the North American market, or who already have US / Canadian clients.

What to expect:

  • Pre-mission briefing / event in London before the visit
  • Networking opportunities with senior executives in banking, insurance, technology and finance
  • Targeted meetings and visits
  • Opportunity to showcase individual businesses as well as the City – and wider UK – expertise in FRPS and technology

Our objective is to provide a balanced, senior delegation to demonstrate the strength, diversity and innovation of the UK Financial and Related Professional Services (FRPS) industry.

 

Background

 

The Lord Mayor of the City of London undertakes an extensive annual overseas visits programme, acting as an Ambassador for the UK’s FRPS industry. We are building a focused FRPS business delegation to accompany this visit to North America. These visits support companies to access new markets and open up commercial opportunities through targeted meetings and senior networking. In return, the delegation can support the Lord Mayor in delivering a confident message about the strength and competitiveness of the City of London and the wider UK FRPS industry.
