On Thursday 20th August at Trailblazing Tech 2020 Dave Gardner, partner from TLT hosted the perfect panel to discuss the state of the Banking Revolution and what the future holds for fintech in Manchester and beyond. Panellists included:-

  • Rachel Eyre, Business Development Manager for Manchester’s Inward Development Agency MIDAS
  • Ali O’Reilly, Senior Sponsorship, Partnerships and Events Manager at Virgin Money
  • Anthony Morrow, Founder of OpenMoney
  • Winston Pearson, Senior Product Manager from AccessPay.

There has been disruption in financial services for many years, and Covid-19 has had a dramatic effect as an accelerant of existing changes.  March 2020 marks a turning point for business generally and FS specifically.  This has created a real opportunity for naturally innovative and dynamic fintech businesses, but no business or sector is immune from the wider economic impact of Covid-19, nor the challenges posed by the Isolation Economy.

Recent events have been a catalyst for innovation for financial services providers.  Sharp focus on what customers want, how their needs are changing, and how FS providers can differentiate themselves in a marketplace with a large number of established and new providers.

You can now watch the session back to look at all the areas that were explored and the insights given into Manchester’s growing fintech sector.
