Singapore Fintech Festival Agenda & Speakers

This year’s Singapore Fintech Festival is just around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited! While the festival gathers the industry’s top minds and more than +50,000 attendees, it can sometimes be overwhelming to understand how all the sessions work. We simplified it for you. 

What is the theme of this year?

This year’s SFF will reflect the current conditions of the global economy following a surge in global inflation, and will see industry experts explore key questions regarding the viability, responsibility and inclusivity of organisations and their strategies. During the festival, speakers and partners will discuss and share insights in order to solve 3 key questions:
  1. How are organisations building and redefining business models that can be more resilient to volatile market conditions?
  2. How are organisations balancing corporate responsibility and profitability in order to achieve greater stakeholder satisfaction and engagement?
  3. How are organisations designing inclusive business models that cater to the needs of the unbanked and underbanked?
