The MAD FinTech Talent Committee has developed a FinTech Skills Matrix (MHF), which defines a series of competencies endorsed by the European Union to be able to work successfully in the FinTech sector, and which was presented last Tuesday 13 April at a working meeting of the Cybersecurity Lab for the Parliaments of the Americas of the Organization of American States (OAS), in which more than 30 financial and FinTech companies from Chile, Costa Rica and Mexico participated.
The MAD Fintech Talent Committee, chaired by Marlon Molina, presented the FinTech Talent Matrix at a meeting attended by financial companies and their respective parliaments, with the aim of learning about parliamentary activity in matters that impact FinTech activity, in a process of conversation between the public and private sectors to facilitate their rapport in a globalised world that needs public-private collaboration to develop successfully.
Ricardo Santiago, member of the Madrid Capital FinTech (MAD FinTech) cluster and responsible for the FinTech Talent Matrix within the Talent Committee, presented the activities of the cluster and the benefits of the matrix applied to the organisation. He also took the opportunity to invite organisations and parliaments to learn about the role of the city of Madrid as a global epicentre of the FinTech industry.
Since its inception, the cluster has had an international vocation, with particularly strong ties to Latin America. Therefore, the fact that countries such as Mexico, Chile, Costa Rica and Colombia are leading the legislative drive for the financial sector and FinTech is good news for the future of the industry, something that is endorsed by the OAS through these dialogues and public-private cooperation. From the cluster we continue to promote these collaborative activities, which will determine the future of FinTech.
