We are pleased to welcome the largest employee organization in the financial sector, Finansforbundet, as a new partner in NCE Finance Innovation.
Finansforbundet (The Finance Sector Union) is interested in matters and development in the finance industry that will have consequences for the employees, the companies and society.
A partnership with NCE Finance Innovation will give us insight into new thoughts, trends and strategies given by technological options at an early stage.
- Pål Adrian Hellman, president of Finansforbundet
Skilled people are already in high demand and the shortage will grow in the years to come. The Finance Sector Union organizes more than 30 000 workers in the finance industry. Many of these are already working on new solutions and this will result in an increased speed of innovation and need for change to capitalize on the business opportunities we see going forward.
- We may represent an alternative voice when it comes to effects on society that are not wanted in the long run. But most of all we are curious to follow the interesting and important work that NCE Finance Innovation contributes to within the fintech space, says Hellman.
The collaboration with the Finance Sector Union will give NCE Finance Innovation unique insights into these business opportunities, the potential value they represent, but also potential challenges.
- This collaboration will put us in a better position to deliver on our mission and we look forward to collaborating with Finansforbundet, says Atle Sivertsen, CEO of NCE Finance Innovation.
