Financial and business services
We fully recognise the role that the financial services industry plays in the economy and are committed to supporting and working with the industry to strengthen our foothold in financial and business services. The Financial Services Growth and Development Board (FiSGAD), established in 2022, is a main forum for engagement between the Financial and Professional Services industry and Scottish Government. Evidence shows Scotland is the most important UK financial centre outside of London and the South East, with a breadth of services including:
- investment management
- corporate finance
- general/ life assurance
- global custody
- asset servicing
Scotland is also home to a thriving fintech sector.
