Singapore FinTech Festival is the largest and most inclusive celebration of FinTech in the world. As part of the UK-Singapore FinTech Bridge the Department for International Trade (DIT) is a major partner of the annual event, hosted by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Each year it attracts global participants including heads of state, policy makers, financial and technology leaders, FinTech founders, and academics. This year’s hybrid format enabled this global network to continue to engage, connect and come together from around the world.
For 2020, the DIT in partnership with 11FS, City of London Corporation and Innovate Finance hosted a day of sessions highlighting key FinTech success stories and UK strengths, areas of leadership and collaboration. The fantastic line-up of speakers consisted of Financial Institution and FinTech CEOs and Founders as well as Regulators and Senior Ministers who  shared their views through the Singapore FinTech Festival online platform.
