Sam Halford, Managing Director of EQ India, was invited to meet The Lord Mayor of London, Charles Bowman, at a dinner reception on 10 October. The Lord Mayor visited Mumbai, Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore) and Delhi to promote trade and collaboration between the UK and India and increase ties within the fintech industry.
Sam and other business and government leaders were called upon to share inside tips and expert advice on setting up and operating businesses in India, to support other fintech companies looking to expand into the country. Sam commented:
“It was a great pleasure to meet The Lord Mayor to discuss the fintech revolution and various possibilities of collaboration for UK & Indian fintech companies. We had an interesting conversation on the cultural differences and the role it plays while doing business in India. The Lord Mayor enquired of Equiniti’s India operation and was impressed by our growth. As part of the future visit plans I have invited The Lord Mayor to visit the Equiniti facility in Chennai.”
