There is a growing and increasingly influential number of FinTech companies in the Northern Powerhouse (NPH), developing predominantly in clusters around Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle. Businesses are operating in areas including payment mechanisms, credit management, transactional processing, marketing and customer management.

With this strength of talent, there are great opportunities for NPH FinTech companies who are interested in growing their business internationally.

The Department for International Trade (DIT) is pleased to be working with FinTech North and our overseas teams to deliver this programme, designed to help you quickly understand the most important information about three key markets for FinTechs - USA, Canada and Australia - and access the opportunities each market offers.
