BPFI Welcomes First Ever Fintech Census

2nd May 2018

Banking & Payments Federation Ireland (BPFI) and its affiliates the Fintech & Payments Association of Ireland (FPAI) and the Federation of International Banks in Ireland (FIBI) welcome the launch today of Ireland’s first Fintech Census by Minister of State for Financial Services, Michael D’arcy T.D.

A key initiative of the IFS 2020 Action Plan for 2018, the Census will provide valuable information to investors and policymakers on the composition and needs of Irish Fintechs, helping to boost the understanding of Irish Fintechs across Ireland and the rest of the world.

BPFI, FPAI and FIBI are pleased to support such an important initiative in light of the on-going expansion of Ireland’s fintech ecosystem.  We believe it is particularly timely in the context of the European Commission’s Fintech Action Plan announced in March and the Central Bank of Ireland’s new approach to its engagement around innovation and technology in financial services.  FPAI will be encouraging its members to participate in the census and we very much look forward to the report’s results in due course.
