21 February 2022
- CTL: “buyers can own their home without incurring debt whilst investors can reap the rewards of the housing market without the hassle of tenant management.”
As part of the Mayor’s International Business Programme, the business growth and destination agency London & Partners is sending a cohort of UK fintech talent on a trade mission to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
During the four day visit, beginning 20 February, 11 London-based fintech delegates are due to meet with an array of pioneers who are currently leading the cultivation of MENA’s fintech industry. The visit, which seeks to build lasting connections between fintech entrepreneurs and innovators from both the UK and the UAE, will see delegates meeting with representatives from Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), National Bank of Fujairah, Emirates NDB and Digital Nexa.
A dedicated venture to Abu Dhabi, one of the UAE’s core financial centres, will allow an opportunity for the delegates to build their networks with Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) and Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO), whilst the trip will also facilitate important face-to-face meetings with Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank. Additionally, the delegates are also due to meet with ADQ and its new Neobank.
Of course, no current trade mission to the UAE would be complete without a visit to the Expo 2020 Dubai, which will include a crucial networking reception held at the UK Pavilion.
The delegates selected for the mission represent the very best of UK fintech talent, demonstrating the creativity and innovation of London’s fintech ecosystem, and will include CrowdToLive® and another London-based fintech delegates:
