PAT Fintech Ecosystem and IFS Skillnet

IFS Skillnet is a national network of partner associations and companies operating in the international financial services industry in Ireland. It’s aim is to support the IFS sector in maintaining Ireland’s position as a top international financial services centre, through ongoing investment in the development of the skills and expertise of this workforce.

Aligned with the development and delivery of PAT Fintech’s programmes, PAT is collaborating with the IFS Skillnet Network to provide a range of short courses that develop/deliver the skills & competencies required across the evolving Financial Services (Fintech) sector.
