What to expect from Singapore Fintech Festival 2019?

The world’s largest Financial Technology event, with nearly 45,000 participants from more than 130 countries, is an obvious must-attend for the CFTE team. The Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF) takes place in one of the fastest developing regions, Singapore, during the week of 11th-15th of November and is expected to attract thousands of executives, entrepreneurs, investors and regulators from all around the World.

The Festival will be concentrated at the Expo during the first three days (11th-13th) and then spread all over the city to different lab Crawls and industry events to discuss some of the biggest trends and challenges in Fintech. SFF 2019 promises to be even bigger and better than the previous years. Great efforts have been made to ensure more than 300 top-level speakers from leading institutions, allowing participants to get a unique view of Asia’s vibrant Fintech ecosystem. It will be also substantially easier to network with other attendees and speakers through the matchmaking platform SWITCH.

This year’s programme key themes include: 

  • Sustainability, Finance and Tech
  • Future of Finance
  • Investments and Global Markets Opportunities
  • Exponential Technologies
