CFTE and IBF Unite to Upskill Finance Professionals for a Digital World in Singapore

CFTE was pleased to organise classes during the SGunited Financial Sector 2020 for finance professionals to grasp the opportunities of FinTech and be part of this industry’s transformation amid the financial sector’s rapid shift towards digital-first skills.

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed different aspects of our lives including how we work. Not only has it accelerated digitalisation across different processes in our everyday work lives but also has completely changed the landscape of the job market. The financial sector in particular is seeing a rapid shift in consumer behaviour towards being digital-first, directly creating a shift in the priorities of traditional companies in this industry.

As a company where bridging the knowledge gap in emerging trends for our clients lies at the very core of our mission, we were pleased to participate in the SGUnited Financial Sector Jobs and Skills Fair in Singapore. Hosted by the Institute of Banking and Finance on 12-13th August, the event targeted financial services professionals, mid-career professionals looking to enter into finance and fresh graduates looking for traineeship opportunities.

Over the two days, participants had the opportunity to join different webinars, skills workshops and hiring zones to learn and acquire the right skills through sample training sessions.

CFTE organised 6 skills workshops on “Why should you care about FinTech” for participants to grasp the opportunities of FinTech and be part of this industry’s transformation.

The Key Takeaways from the workshop were:

  • Understand the current Fintech ecosystem
  • Knowledge & application of the new technologies transforming the finance industry
