Commenting on the launch of Scotland’s Financial Services Strategy, Fraser Wilson, Financial Services Leader, PwC Scotland, said:
“Whether the increasing reliance on technology, the climate agenda or a focus on inclusion, the proposals in Scotland’s Financial Services Strategy ensure our industry can have a positive impact both locally and internationally.
“It is a bold, far-reaching strategy that frames the financial services industry’s role in the economic recovery within the context of a rapidly changing society.
Increasing collaboration to help deliver on the recommendations will help drive a sustainable recovery by creating jobs, developing skills, attracting inward investment and creating an environment where innovation can flourish.
“The decisions we make now, and implement over the next five years will have enormous implications for the future, and in laying out this strategy, SFE has illustrated the positive impact the financial services industry can make to both the economy and society itself.”
