“We are pleased that the Singapore FinTech Festival has grown this year, to become the world’s largest fintech festival,” said Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief Fintech Officer of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). “It is a synergistic platform for the global fintech community to spark new ideas and gain valuable insights.”

The event has been organised by MAS, the Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS) and SingEx Holdings, with a new feature having been added this year – the Investor summit also known as “Deal Day”.

This new feature will provide an opportunity to locally-based startups to access funding from investors in the aim of promoting innovation within the industry.

“There will be many opportunities for financial institutions and FinTech companies to come together and collaborate on value-adding partnerships,” Mohanty continued. “We are excited to build on the success of the inaugural festival last year, and continue in our efforts to foster a thriving global fintech ecosystem.”

Over 160 industry leaders will be speaking over the course of the conference, including the UN Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, and India’s Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley.
