According to Glen Frost, Founder of the FinTech Awards, “We hope that people will hold their own Covid-Safe FinTech Award events at home, in their office, or at their incubator/hub – we know the fintech sector will get behind the online event as there is a huge need to support each other this year!”
Award categories have expanded again this year – reflecting the dramatic growth of new fintech players into every facet of banking and finance; new awards include Best FinTech/Bank App, Best services from; Neo-Bank, Supply Chain Finance, Alternative Asset Platforms, Foreign Exchange as well as consumer lending and business lending.
“We’ve added new categories to ensure everyone has the opportunity to be recognized for their achievements and success.”
“The FinTech Awards brings together the influential, disruptive, collaborative and innovative companies that are changing financial services, and whilst this has been a very disruptive year financially due to Covid, we believe it is important to host the awards – in a Covid-safe manner of course,” said Frost.
