HL is a fantastic example of the opportunity for financial and professional services to grow in the West of England. Established in 1981, the organisation has grown from humble beginnings to one of the shining stars of our region, reaching the FTSE top 50.
Bristol is known for its professional services sector, and Bristol and Bath were also recently recognised in the Kalifa Review of Fintech as one of the Top 10 leading Fintech Clusters in the UK.
Pre COVID-19 the Government estimated over 30,000 UK Fintech jobs and 1,600 new businesses would come from the sector by 2030.
Chris Hill, CEO, is clear on why Bristol has been such a great place to grow the business. “The city has two fantastic universities providing a constant supply of talent, armed with the skills that modern businesses need to succeed and remain competitive. The launch of the University of Bristol and University of the West of England’s FinTech MSCs will attract more talent to the city.”
