Scaling Sustainable Finance for a Green Recovery – Ecosystm Global Leaders Roundtable at Singapore FinTech Festival 2021 – Highlights

Scaling Sustainable Finance for a Green Recovery – Ecosystm SFF 2021 Roundtable in Partnership with Ecosystm.

The market for sustainable finance is rapidly growing in response to the climate emergency. Despite impressive recent growth, the sustainable finance market has a long road ahead to reach maturity. It faces competing initiatives, uneven coverage by geography and asset class, misalignment of definitions and a mismatch between supply and demand. Moreover, all around the world, countries are still facing social and economic fallout from the global pandemic, and rebuilding our economies in a post-Covid-19 era has never been more urgent.

How can the financial sector adequately respond to these global concerns? What is the role of finance in the green recovery and how can public and private sectors collaborate to scale credible ESG investments? Our experts discuss the most innovative financial products and instruments that aim to deliver social and environmental benefits alongside attractive returns. Moderated by Ecosystm’s Amit Gupta, hear from Marty Dropkin (FIL Asia), R. Raghunathan (WWF-Singapore), Sasja Beslik (SDG Impact Japan), and Zoë Knight (HSBC).

Organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the 6th edition of the Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) ran from 8 -12 November 2021. The annual event brings together 60,000 participants from 160 countries – both virtually and in-person – for the development of financial services, public policy and technology.

The Building Blocks of Web 3.0 – Ecosystm Global Leaders Roundtable at Singapore FinTech Festival 2021 – Highlights

The Building Blocks of Web 3.0 – Singapore FinTech Festival 2021 Roundtable in Partnership with Ecosystm

Web 3.0 is the next phase of the internet’s evolution, but what technologies does it need to succeed? While the Web 3.0 stack is not yet fully developed, much progress has been made to set the foundations for a new online ecosystem that breaks away from the traditional web into new realms of online interaction. There are many examples of early-stage Web 3.0 applications that show how much potential the technologies can help realise. The concept of Web 3.0 may be interpreted differently but it is, at its core, a movement for a free web. A high-level discussion about Web 3.0 components and how they will shape the future of your online activities.

Hear from Brenda Harvey of IBM APAC, Divyesh Vithlani of Accenture, Emin Gün Sirer of Ava Labs, Peter Wright of ST Telemedia Cloud and Vincent Yang of Firework. This session was moderated by Ullrich Loeffler of Ecosystm.

Shaping the Future of Financial Services with Decentralised Finance – Ecosystm Global Leaders Roundtable at Singapore FinTech Festival 2021 – Highlights

Is Decentralised Finance taking over the banking world? Decentralised Finance is an emerging phenomenon, and it has been gaining the attention of the mainstream media since 2020.

Globally, about 1.7 billion adults remain unbanked. There’s a race to “bank the unbanked” to promote financial inclusion. On the other end of the spectrum, there are also efforts to “un-bank the banked”. With the rise of blockchain, it’s time to reformulate the consumer banking system with more secure and more affordable financial products. We hear from an unparalleled group of Decentralised Finance innovators and change-makers on how Decentralised Finance will define the next era of global finance. Hear from Dr Ben Goertzel of SingularityNET, Johann Eid of Chainlink Labs, Sudhir Pai of Capgemini and Justin Amos of Lygon. This session was moderated by Anjali Kapoor of Alt Key Theory.

Organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the 6th edition of the Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) ran from 8 -12 November 2021.
