With more than 60,000 attendees, 850 speakers and 160 countries represented, the 2022 Singapore Fintech Festival, themed on the resilience of financial services, came to a successful conclusion. CFTE was proudly supporting the festival as a knowledge partner.
The Singapore FinTech Festival 2022 (SFF) held from November 2 to 4 in Singapore, was focused on discussing ways to build a resilient business model in today’s challenging market environment. Organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Elevandi, and Constellar and in collaboration with the Association of Banks in Singapore, the seventh SFF was the world’s largest gathering for the Fintech community.
SFF 2022 comprises a series of Global and Knowledge Plenary sessions, an Innovation Lab Crawl, and an Elevandi Insights Forum is organised in the format of roundtable discussion. This year, there were also physical exhibitions featuring over hundreds of leading organisations, including financial institutions, regulators and Fintech companies, showcasing their latest developments in Fintech.
Following the successful first edition of Point Zero Forum, Zurich, the Elevandi Insights Forum leverages the format of private, invite-only, deep-dive roundtables, and aims to bring together public and private sectors for debating challenges faced by the financial sector. CFTE was honoured to be an official knowledge partner this year at SFF and hosted a roundtable—Addressing New Skills Gap in Financial Services, at Elevandi Insights Forum. Huy NGUYEN TRIEU, co-founder of CFTE and SFF ambassador, led the discussion on how to address the current challenges faced by the financial sector and drive resilience to fuel the industry’s growth.
The Innovation Lab at SFF opened the doors for companies and organisations to showcase their up-and-coming Fintech innovations and projects, from blockchain, cryptocurrencies to digital payments. It provided an unique opportunity for the audience to catch a glimpse into the future of the Fintech industry.
In addition, the Ecosystem stages at SFF allowed companies and Fintech players to announce their latest initiatives and products. Tram Anh Nguyen, co-founder of CFTE and SFF ambassador, introduced the SHIME skills framework to help everyone understand the essential skills in the digitally-evolving financial sector. Tram Anh also delivered the official launch of the three latest products of CFTE: the Live Programme of Digital Transformation, led by Chris Skinner, CEO of The Finanser; the Live Programme of Central Bank Digital Currencies, led by Dr. Oriol Caudevilla; and our Fintech 360 in Spanish.
SFF was back to being physical this year, and the Fintech community gathered back together and shifted the networking. CFTE was pleased to hold our CFTE FIVE YEARS Anniversary in Singapore with 100+ senior leaders from financial service, Fintech startups and CFTE’s alumni. The last five years have been an extraordinary journey, and we were glad to celebrate this milestone on the last day of the Singapore FinTech Festival, making it an even more meaningful moment for CFTE.
SFF 2022 focused on “building resilient business models amidst volatility and change” with the Elevandi insight forum, the Innovation Lab, and the Global plenaries in the industry. It was extremely successful and many global leaders convened to provide their insights and bring key actionable outcomes which can benefit the whole Fintech ecosystem. See you in 2023!
