London, Singapore, October 17 – The Centre for Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurship (CFTE) returns to Singapore Fintech Festival 2023 – organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Elevandi and Constellar – as an official Knowledge Partner for the second time. 

  • CFTE, along with policymakers, financial institutions and tech companies, will address the problem of the skill gap within the financial services industry.

Artificial intelligence, blockchain, digital assets and other advancements transform the state of the financial services workforce. New tech skills are a crucial topic for individuals, organisations and governments as well, which are accelerating tech development at scale. Either developed or developing economies, the question of talent is central for the future of the digital economy, and it is one of the main themes of SFF 2023.

Following the success of 2022, CFTE returns to the festival as a Knowledge Partner once again to support the participants and institutions to acquire the new skills in financial services. Previous SFF Knowledge partners include the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Milken Institute, Institute of International Finance, BIS Innovation Hub and the Singapore Fintech Association and other leading organisations. 

The partnership with the Singapore Fintech Festival comes with numerous advantages for the CFTE community of alumni professionals and partners, such as the free entry tickets and other perks.

At the same time, CFTE co-founders, Tram Anh Nguyen and Huy Nguyen Trieu, are proud to be named the ambassadors of the Singapore Fintech Festival 2023. This privilege is an occasion to contribute to tech progress from the perspective of industry talent.
