Frankfurt Main Finance is working hard to establish Frankfurt as the leading FinTech Centre in Germany and the euro zone. In the process, creating a FinTech Hub in Frankfurt has become a top priority. Such a FinTech Hub would do well to increase the visibility of the FinTech scene in the Frankfurt Rhine-Main region and the advantages it has for young start-ups. There is already broad support from the Financial Community for the developing FinTechs in the region.
“At the initiative of Frankfurt Main Finance and supported by EY, Dialogue Forum FinTech Frankfurt Rhine-Main brings together some 50 public and private institutions as well as numerous FinTech companies. They are united in the goal of establishing an attractive, successful and sustainable FinTech ecosystem in the region,” explains Dr. Lutz Raettig, Chairman of the Executive Committee of Frankfurt Main Finance. “It is quite remarkable how many have joined in supporting this initiative.” The initiative was launched in October 2015 and is scheduled to end in May 2016, before the new FinTech Hub in Frankfurt opens.
