The Singapore FinTech Festival 2021 (SFF2021) will take place from 8 to 12 November, as both a hybrid digital and physical event, with the theme “Web 3.0”.
Over three days the event plans to bring together global experts to discuss how Web 3.0 and key technological advances will power the future of financial services.
It will examine three key structural drivers that could reshape financial services in the coming decade:
- re-configuration of financial products and services delivery through embedded finance (#EmFi), decentralised finance (#DeFi) and digital currencies;
- integration of ESG into the core design of financial services;
- pervasive adoption of foundational digital infrastructure (Digital Identity, Trusted Data Exchange, Interoperable Payment Systems and Consent Systems).
Last year’s ‘live’ broadcasts featured leading industry and government leaders, including the Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of New Zealand; HE Uhuru Kenyatta, President of Kenya; François Villeroy de Galhau, Governor, Banque de France; Bill Gates, Co-Chair and Trustee, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Sundar Pichai, Chief Executive Officer, Google and Alphabet; and Jane Fraser, Chief Executive Officer, Citigroup.
SFF 2021 is organised in partnership with The Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS) and in collaboration with Constellar Exhibitions.
The first three days of the SFF will feature a hybrid conference and exhibition. On the 11 and 12 November, participants can attend global satellite events and industry events online and at physical locations.
