The Pride in Fintech Powerlist celebrates the positive impact members of the LGBTGIA+ community have made across the financial services sector

In brief:

-Through the initiative, Innovate Finance says it is working to create a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community, and hoping to inspire future generations of the industry.

-There are 59 people included on the list, including seven anonymous entrants, and they have each shared their story, their impact and their advice.
