AltFi London Summit 2019

The AltFi Festival of Finance is a two-day in-person spectacular exploring innovation and opportunities in fintech, banking and lending in the UK and across Europe.


Since establishing our annual Festival in 2020, we’ve followed the ups and downs of our industry, and we’re excited to bring the Festival of Finance back for the fourth year running!


For 2023 we’ll be exploring the new opportunities of our post-pandemic world and the new crises presented by a global economic slowdown and rising cost of living.


Across the two days, we’ll welcome speakers and delegates from the UK’s fintech and alternative finance sector, the European market. We’ll cap off the event by welcoming everyone to our infamous AltFi After Hours party in central London.


Each day’s full agenda will be available soon, but you can expect to hear from 50+ speakers joining us from the most innovative finance companies in the UK and Europe.


Standard Tickets are available to register now for free, but hurry as they are strictly limited to 400 and will sell out!


Register today and join us in April 2023. All ticket registrations will be vetted by AltFi to ensure the best audience, etc.
