Free in this week’s NS: Matt Hancock and Eileen Burbidge debate the UK’s fintech future

A first look at this week’s issue of Spotlight, the New Statesman’s regular policy supplement.

By New Statesman

At the Treasury’s recent International Fintech Conference, Oscar Williams spoke to Secretary of State for Digital Matt Hancock, Special Envoy for Fintech Eileen Burbidge, and Economic Secretary to the Treasury John Glen and asked them about the government’s plans to support the UK’s position as a fintech leader.

Also in this edition of Spotlight, Will Dunn investigates Aladdin, the risk analysis system that values $20 trillion in assets. Is this the most influential piece of technology in the world?

Anne Boden, CEO of Starling bank and finance renegade, explains to Augusta Riddy why the days of the big traditional banks are numbered, and why banks like hers are making sure that the sector will never go back to business as usual.

Rohan Banerjee talks to CEO of Innovate Finance Charlotte Croswell about what fintech in the UK needs. All this, and more, in the latest edition of Spotlight – free with this week’s New Statesman.
