Why we joined FPAI

GECKO joined BPAI / FPAI in 2020 to increase the collaboration necessary to drive and mould the future of FinTech in Financial Services in Ireland. Our team believes that the future of finance lies in the willingness of industry participants working together and collaborating to ensure we have the most appropriate technological solutions readily available to meet the demands of the industry. 

Since we have joined the BPAI / FPAI, members of our team have been involved in panels for industry events, the Fintech Foresight Steering Group and many other great initiatives that the BPAI /FPAI have launched. 
Such is the value that we get out of our membership, we have introduced many firms in our professional network to Michael Concannon and his team, with a view to them joining as members. 

How FPAI has helped

FPAI and BPFI and their teams of specialists provide expertise and support to us as a member, helping to expand and build our network through communication, networking, training and events. Having an open conversation with other stakeholders in the industry allows us to look at the landscape more broadly, discuss where we see developments, trends, and opportunities in fintech in the coming years, ensuring that we have built the right solutions to continue success in this area.


Obviously Covid19 has put paid to a lot of in person networking, but the BPFI / FPAI have adapted incredibly well, and the networking opportunities remain as high as ever.
