FiNexus is a specialist services entity that facilitates integration between the financial services industry, research centres and SMEs. The e-ecosystem being built by FiNexus will allow problem owners from within the financial services industry to easily and effectively access academics, entrepreneurs, technology companies, HPC centres and data providers in a mutually productive and collaborative way. The figure below outlines how this happens.
The core activities of FiNexus are based around the dynamic relationships between challenges and solutions and they provide targeted projects which not only aid discovery but also drive collaboration between members, along with a watching brief on any innovation (Fintech) which might be relevant to the financial services industry and to potential funders (angels, VC, PE and grant funders).
FiNexus will also promote positive interaction between policy-makers and the financial services industry and technology providers. It will support entrepreneurial activity, growth and innovation and will provide return opportunities for academic research into financial services.
