398. Insights: Will Brexit break UK fintech?

David Brear and Ross Gallagher are joined by some great guests to discuss what Brexit and our departure from the European Union will mean for UK fintech. Guests on today's show are Emily Nicolle, Technology Editor at City AM and James Hurley, Enterprise Editor at The Times.

In today's Insights show, we reflect on the past 4 years of Brexit and discuss the future of fintech in post-Brexit Britain. This week's guests include:

  • Emily Nicolle - Technology Editor at City AM
  • James Hurley - Enterprise Editor at The Times

Before diving into it, we revisit our very first episode of Fintech Insider. That show was a Brexit special, where David Brear, Jason Bates, Simon Taylor and Chris Skinner talked about their predictions for the implications of Brexit. Almost four years on, how do they hold up? Are fintechs fleeing the UK for greener pastures in the E.U.? Conversely, is Brexit attracting more fintech talent to the UK? Startup life is full of uncertainty and Brexit has been much the same.

So, what can fintech companies do to protect themselves now that Brexit is upon us and how will the industry shift in the coming months and years?

All this and much more on this week's Fintech Insider Insights show!
