Having worked in this space for over three years, it's of no surprise that Edinburgh is pushing forward in it's bid to be the data capital of Europe. 

In the latest initiative supporting Edinburgh's push towards becoming that capital, the Edinburgh and South-East Scotland City Region Deal has a real emphasis on data that utilises Edinburgh's (and the wider Scottish) strengths in data-related university courses as well as the local ecosystem forming around Open Banking.

It will be fascinating to continue to see the fast growth in FinTech companies and businesses supported by these new data scientists, as well as other data related roles.

Another reason for Scotland to continue to move towards being a leading Global FinTech ecosystem.
