Britain Set to Become Financial Services Cryptocurrency Leader

By: SBWire

Berlin, Germany -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/23/2022 -- In spite of all the issues and delays that Brexit has caused the financial services sector it looks like the UK is set to become a leader in the world of crypto. More and more people are now choosing cryptocurrencies thanks to the increasingly mainstream nature of the sector. Investment in financial technology has been a big factor in the rise of the UK in cryptocurrencies. British-based start-ups attract a wealth of financing, as well as the conditions of the financial services sector in the UK, have made it much easier for digital currencies and the innovative tech that surrounds them to start to flourish. There are, of course, those in the UK that are wary of digital currencies and the change they represent. However, as more and more governments get on board with cryptocurrencies globally it's clear that this sector has staying power - and huge potential - for countries like the UK that are willing to lead the way.

The team at Selby Jennings said, "Little did we know that the pandemic would spark a new chapter for financial services. From ever-evolving regulations, mercurial consumer expectations, digital transformation, to the heightened competition from incumbents and new entrants, financial services verticals evolved at lightning speed – all while in a stage of poised recovery with the need to future-proof operations from additional disruption.

Alongside challenges brought on by the pandemic, financial services in 2021 were gripped by the wider political and socio-economic context that was Brexit, as banks and financial institutions packed their bags to move some, or all, of their operations to cities across Europe. However, Financial Services were one of the few bright spots of the past year, providing fuel to the economy and scaling up in a time where many sectors wouldn't take the risk. 2022 is already shaping up to be a record-breaking year in terms of talent movement, and we can't wait to help clients secure that world-class talent."
