Andrew Jenkins welcomes the publication of the Independent Fintech Strategic Review led by Ron Kalifa OBE

Andrew Jenkins, Fintech Envoy for Northern Ireland has welcomed the recommendations of the Kalifa Review, a Treasury commissioned report identifying priority areas for industry and policymakers to support the UK Fintech sector. He said:

“I very much welcome the Kalifa Review recommendations. I believe they can help shape the future of Fintech right across the UK and serve as a catalyst to further enhance Northern Ireland’s Fintech reputation on a global stage.”

“Throughout the review process I ensured the voice of Northern Ireland’s Fintech sector was heard and believe the report supports the levelling up agenda for regional investment and innovation. Recent years have seen Belfast established as an attractive international investment center that punches well above its weight due to talent excellence, a cost-effective infrastructure and strong network of academic partnerships.”

“The review brings an opportunity to leverage these assets and ensure greater connectivity across the UK. It is a welcome commitment to training and upskilling our workforce and futureproofing Fintech talent for years to come.”
