FinTech North is delighted to announce that we will continue to work with Leeds Building Society as one of our Strategic Partners in 2024.

Leeds Building Society (LBS), who need no introduction as one of the best-known financial services institutions in the UK, first started working in partnership with FinTech North at the end of 2022. Our Strategic Partnership encompassed a suite of joint activity including hosting the Leeds FinTech Report Launch 2023 and headline sponsorship of the 2023 Leeds Conference including a keynote presentation focussed on partnerships in FinTech.

Leeds Building Society operates to ensure that more people have the home they want, and by working with FinTech North and the Northern FinTech community, aims to bring cutting-edge thought leadership and technology together to help impact issues such as home-ownership and vulnerability, amongst many others.

The partnership marks the Society’s ongoing engagement with the FinTech sector and the continuation of a collaborative relationship to find innovative solutions to key customer needs which achieve its purpose of putting home ownership within reach of more people, generation after generation.

Vanessa Roberts, Head of Strategy at Leeds Building Society, said: (2022 Quote) “Making home ownership more achievable is the driver behind everything we do at Leeds Building Society. By partnering with FinTech North we hope to be able to work with new partners to trial and implement new solutions for our members. We hope to enhance the accessibility and affordability of borrowing and make saving for a home easier in order to help more people onto and up the housing ladder.

“We are proud to be championing the FinTech sector in one of the UK’s top regions for financial services. We’ve already achieved some impressive feats, such as adopting cloud-based capabilities to become best-in-class for decision-making on lending. Through this partnership with FinTech North we will be looking at solutions to help our aspirational homeowners navigate the cost-of-living crisis, and how we can to provide meaningful support to our members.”

Joe Roche, Engagement Manager, FinTech North, said: “We’re so happy to be working once again with the team at Leeds Building Society. They are highly collaborative and thought-leading when it comes to our sector, so we’re incredibly grateful for their support and involvement.

LBS bring a brilliant perspective to our FinTech community, those ideas and challenges they work on daily are really valuable when brought to our collective attention, and contribute to the overall success of our thriving ecosystem.”
