Innovate events

We regularly organise events to raise awareness of the services available, provide support to innovators and discuss emerging trends in the sector.

Innovation Hub events include:

  • roundtables that focus on the Innovation Hub and the FCA and ask for feedback on how we can improve our operations
  • surgeries that provide support to businesses experiencing specific and common issues working with the regulatory framework, including Q&A sessions to explore problems and coaching sessions to educate attendees
  • thematic workshops that draw on industry expertise to discuss emerging trends in the sector and consider potential impact from a regulatory perspective.

We are also often invited to events – such as workshops, roadshows, roundtables, conferences and panel sessions – hosted by other organisations that support innovation in financial services. If you would like to invite us to your event, please contact

If you would like to invite the FCA to speak at your event, please fill in our speaker request form.
