PwC has announced the latest cohort of FinTechs who have joined the Wealth Scale programme. The programme will support nine of the brightest WealthTech businesses with their ambitious growth plans.
Focused on the UK and International Insurance and Asset and Wealth market, this cohort will see a number of connections generated between industry leaders and WealthTech firms, with the aim to build commercial opportunities and relationships.
Will Conner, ScaleWealth Tech Programme Sponsor, said:
“It gives me great pleasure to announce our cohort of nine innovative WealthTech companies, all of whom have great potential to build impact and scale within the wealth industry.
‘’FinTechs are increasingly essential to our economy and crucial to future innovation for the financial services industry. From a group of 600 firms, we have selected nine exceptional Wealth Technology firms, to whom we will be providing access to advice, bespoke support and client networking events.
“Our 2021 ‘Scale’ programme enables high-potential start-ups to accelerate their growth by opening the door to new opportunities. We welcome our WealthTech cohort and look forward to working with them.’’
“We are excited to follow this intake and work with them to continue to drive transformation within the wealth industry.”
The 10-week programme will connect industry leaders to emerging firms to help boost innovation at a critical time for the sector. The pandemic has seen an increasing need for new ideas and flexible thinking to help address the evolving landscape.
Key to this will be addressing changes to consumer behaviour and the new operational challenges and opportunities resulting from the pandemic. As part of the programme, firms will explore the heightened focus on adviser efficiency, risk and compliance, ESG as well as the growing need for operational simplification.
