AltFi Festival of Finance 2022

In-person. In-depth. In London. 


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


After running the Festival of Finance virtually in 2020 and 2021, AltFi is excited to launch the Festival in-person for the very first time! 


Across the two days at the Park Plaza London Riverbank, we’ll explore the UK’s fintech and alternative finance sector, the European market and will cap off the event with the 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 from the most innovative finance companies in the UK and Europe.
