Press Release: International financial guru to co-own and chair Norwegian financial service network


Financial pundit and policy expert Chris Skinner is to be co-owner and appointed Chairman of the Board of industry network Nordic Finance Innovation (NFI). Skinner is known for his books on financial technology, as an eminent speaker and as a financial commentator at the BBC, Sky News and Bloomberg.


- Chris Skinner is perhaps the weightiest voice on fintech in the world. His new role in NFI is testament to the global relevance of the Nordic fintech industry, says NFI CEO Iren Tranvåg.
 

In June, Tranvåg and Skinner visited The White House to talk fintech policy development with the Obama administration and top American legislators. They discussed how to accommodate governments and banks, as well as the needs of regular consumers.

 
With Chris Skinner onboard, NFI wishes to stimulate further global interest for the Nordic fintech market, and to develop Norway as an international test market for fintech innovation.
 

- Nordic Finance Innovation is extremely interesting. This umbrella organization represents the full specter of Norwegian and Nordic financial technology. The network will collaborate well with Financial Service Club, the largest European bank and financial network, which I founded back in 2004, Skinner says.


Nordic Finance Innovation was established last February to build bridges between Nordic and global agents in financial services, and to further global innovation and knowledge in the field. The network has rapidly become an instigator of change in an industry now keenly aware of the need for international and Nordic collaboration.
