FinTech Scotland is an independent not for profit cluster body jointly established with
the financial services sector, universities and Scottish Enterprise to ensure that
Scotland seizes the FinTech opportunities and achieves positive economic and
social outcomes by encouraging financial innovation, collaboration and inclusion as
part of the broader digital economy objectives.

The organisation acts as a strategic enabler and cluster management body focused
on leveraging the potential economic (i.e. productivity, innovation, business creation,
employment) and social (i.e. financial inclusion, well-being and accessibility) benefits
arising from becoming a leading global centre focused on Fintech innovation.

FinTech Scotland’s objectives are to develop an innovative community of FinTech
firms, generate impactful collaborations between firms of all sizes and foster an
inclusive cluster which is UK and globally recognised and connected.

FinTech Scotland was founded in January 2018 as a joint initiative by University of
Edinburgh, Lloyds Banking Group, HSBC and Scottish Enterprise. The organisation
is now supported by a broad range of global financial services, technology and
professional services firms as well as major universities, the Financial Conduct
Authority and Scottish Enterprise.

In August 2022, FinTech Scotland was formally recognised for the development of
the Fintech cluster and accredited with the silver label for Cluster Management
Excellence by the European Secretariat for Cluster Analysis (ESCA). 

In 2019, FinTech Scotland was one the founding bodies along with FinTech North
and Innovate Finance of the UK FinTech National Network which drives collaborative
fintech innovation and development across all UK regions.
