Digital Economy Insights: The Fintech Skills Gap


The fintech industry is lacking the expertise in building, selling and marketing technology platforms that is held by those in sectors like adtech, martech and edtech, according to James Webb, MD, Propel London.

His comments follow a recent Propel London event, Fintech Focus, featuring representatives from Techstars, OpenCorporates, Open Banking Project and more discussing the sector's biggest opportunities and challenges.

“While there may be a lack of domain expertise in finance, the transfer of skills from other sectors is vital for fintech,” said Webb.
