I’ve experienced outsourcing and near shoring in the financial technology sector in several capacities over the last twenty years. I was London based for much of that time, and got involved in building and managing a team in Kiev, as well as working with teams based in Pune, Glasgow & Bournemouth. These days I live in a quiet rural location well outside London, and not so far from Birmingham. So I’m following the development of Birmingham’s fintech sector with interest.
