A partner event of our annual flagship Singapore FinTech Festival, Point Zero Forum represents a unique collaboration between Elevandi (an entity set up by MAS), and the Swiss Secretariat for International Finance (SIF), organised in cooperation with the BIS Innovation Hub, Monetary Authority of Singapore, and Swiss National Bank. The inaugural Forum will be graced by Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister, Heng Swee Keat, Switzerland’s Federal Councillor and the Head of the Federal Department of Finance, Ueli Maurer, as well as leading CEOs (UBS, Julius Baer, Six Group); and innovative founders (FTX Group, wefox). The Forum will serve as the starting point for engaging investors and policymakers with innovators to advance the future of financial services (FOFS).
This invite-only forum aims to bring together investors, influencers, thinkers and decision-makers from the public and private sector to exchange ideas, share knowledge, develop a network, with the purpose of:
- Developing new ideas to advance the FOFS – decentralised finance and Web 3.0, embedded finance and sustainable finance.
- Driving investment activity by bringing together leading founders with VCs, private banking clients, family offices and PE houses
- Dissecting regulatory considerations related to each FOFS development by bringing together public and private sector leaders
Three days of in-depth plenary sessions, deep-dive private roundtables and workshops, and exclusive sessions will focus on significant new market opportunities built on Web 3.0 architecture (June 22) – Tokenisation (June 23) and Sustainable Finance (June 23).
Ecosystm ThinkTank: Web 3.0 Applications: Opportunities Created by the Stemming of Cross Border Data Flows is a moderated, closed door and confidential dialogue for a very limited number of hand-selected participants.
Data is a critical component of the digital economy. Driven by the rise in global technology platforms and the continuing digitalisation of economies and industries, data will become even more critical to organisations and governments. However, regulatory barriers – due to concerns around data privacy and security, economic and competitive protection, and other geopolitical concerns – have the potential to hinder the free flow of data that will power future economic growth.
Join us for this important discussion where we will explore:
- How a global data architecture can become a reality
- The concrete actions that governments and businesses can take to contribute to a global data economy
- The importance of initiatives such as the Switzerland and Singapore framework for cross-border financial data flow, that was announced last month
