Organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and Elevandi, the seventh edition of the Singapore FinTechFestival (SFF) kicks of today as in-person event held at Singapore Expo from October 31 to November 4. The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Building Resilient Business Models amid Volatility and Change’.
“The industry is on the cusp of moving into three areas – Web3, digital assets, and an ESG-focused economy. We have designed SFF to reflect this shift in an open, engaging and bold way, focusing on finding solutions to today’s challenges and taking definitive steps toward implementation across the financial sector. Hence, the content of SFF has shifted to the impact makers who will inspire the community to come together and drive real change”, Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer of MAS and Chairman of Elevandi Board said in an announcement.
This year’s SFF will start with an Innovation Lab Crawl held on 31 October and 1 November. It will feature 26 participating organisations, including Asia FinTech Center, Capgemini, NEC Laboratories, BNY Mellon, DBS and HSBC.
The by-invitation only Capital Meets Policy Dialogue, to be held on 1 November, will “bring together policymakers and investors to discuss the current innovations in financial services, exchange views on emerging risks, and share perspectives on FinTech regulation”.
The conference segment, to be held from 2 to 4 November, will touch on topics including ESG finance and Web3 constituents like DeFi (decentralised finance) and stablecoins. Speakers include DBS Group CEO Piyush Gupta, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, and Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin.
