About the Series

IFT’s Conversations with Industry series was launched in 2019 to bring real-world examples of digital finance innovation and creativity to a classroom setting. Held annually throughout UCL’s Spring Term, the series demonstrates how industrial ecosystems in London and beyond are approaching the topics of finance and technology. These sessions are hosted by IFT’s Industrial Director Paola Bergamaschi-Broyd.

Conversations are open to the general public to attend, particularly to those who have a background or an interest in finance and technology. All conversations are followed by an opportunity for audience Q&A and an informal drinks and networking reception at the venue.
