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: Aligning Innovation and Regulation in a DeFi World is a moderated, closed-door and confidential dialogue for a very limited number of hand-selected participants.
DeFi is increasingly becoming an area of focus for innovators and regulators globally, particularly as it develops alongside highly regulated areas of the economy – and this will be an opportunity to discuss how regulatory principles can be preserved within this ground-breaking sector.
To keep you informed on “what’s next” for this space, the agenda will consist of:
The development of DeFi protocols and their benefits to the wider financial system.
Retail consumer protection and regulatory jurisdiction.
Understanding the obligations and the role of centralised regulated exchanges.
Thinking beyond travel rule for crypto into other areas of emerging risks.
To keep the discussion focused, we are limiting participation to just ten persons from the organisations responsible for
building and regulating this ecosystem. We would be delighted if you could join us for this very important event.
