Starting in Q4 2020, PAT Fintech will be providing a range of training courses that are designed, and delivered, in conjunction with industry bodies, professional bodies, and experienced financial service professionals.
Of varying levels and duration the courses address both the contemporary and the evolving challenges facing employers and employees at the interface of providing traditional financial services in an increasingly Fintech, RegTech and Techfin defined environment.
