A marketing company has launched a new initiative to support the growing fintech ecosystem in Scotland.

BDM Marketing & Communications, supported by FinTech Scotland, will host a series of events throughout 2022, bringing the sector together to address industry-wide challenges in key areas such as policy and regulation, skills and talents, investment and internationalisation.

Called FinTech-Tables, it will align with the FinTech Scotland research and innovation roadmap, which aims to triple economic growth and job creation over the next 10 years.

The ambition of the roadmap is to increase gross economic value added (GVA) through the fintech industry in Scotland from £500,000 today to £21 billion in gross value added by 2031, as well as creating more than 20,000 new fintech jobs.

FinTech-Tables is already in partnership with a number of industry organisations, including Glasgow-based data recruitment firm MBN Solutions and global payments platform Mambu.

The opening event, ‘Growing FinTech in Scotland’, took place at the MBN Solutions office yesterday, with a series of events planned over the next 12 months.

Mickael Paris, Marketing Director of FinTech Scotland, said: “If we are to achieve the desired target of 32,000 new jobs for the sector by 2033, it is important that we come together as a community and think about how from which we can attract a skilled, diverse workforce and an inclusive talent pool to Scotland from around the world.

Michael Young, Managing Director of MBN Solutions, added: “FinTech in Scotland is already having a huge impact on how people and businesses interact with money and financial services – it has the power to change lives and to have a positive impact on both people. and the planet.
