28 October 2020, SINGAPORE: It was unveiled today that Ecosystm, the disruptive technology research and advisory firm, has been appointed as a Knowledge Partner of the Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) 2020. The partnership continues from 2019, where Ecosystm was the Official Thought Leadership Partner of SFF 2019. This year, Ecosystm will work with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the organiser of SFF, in the curation of research, content, speakers and sessions.
SFF 2020 will be a hybrid event with 24-hour online access over 5 days, and over 40 Global Satellite Events in key FinTech hubs around the world to cover every time zone. The event will take place from 7 – 11 December 2020.
As part of the partnership, Ecosystm will work with SFF to provide research, curated content, speakers and run global leaders’ roundtable sessions. Ecosystm will also publish a report capturing data and research-led insights into the key themes of SFF 2020. As a continuation from last year’s Global Leadership Roundtable sessions at SFF, Ecosystm will be responsible for running a series of online Global Leaders Roundtable sessions this year. The sessions will bring key global stakeholders – including government leaders, international policymakers, global and local industry leaders and leading academics – together for talks, and encouraging knowledge-sharing on topics that cut across the key themes of the five Global Summits at SFF – the Economic, Infrastructure, Impact, Investor, and Talent Summits.
In the lead-up to the SFF, Ecosystm is also working closely with SFF to deliver research insights through a series of digital content including blog articles, videos, and reports. Focused on the theme of this year’s event, “People and Talent”, the content will provide deeper context to the discussions that will take place at SFF.
Commenting on the partnership, Amit Gupta, CEO & Founder, Ecosystm said: “We’re privileged to be back working with the talented team at SFF. I’m inspired by how the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) team has over the years built SFF into a platform that not only helps drive innovation in the financial services ecosystem but also brings together key stakeholders to discuss ways to tackle some of the biggest foundation shifts the world is dealing with at the moment. It allows us to discuss frameworks to connect innovative solutions for real world problems back to economic outcomes, and eventually transforming how the financial services sector can better serve people, businesses, and the planet. We are once again looking forward to leveraging our research, and insights from our global analysts, to bring value to this amazing platform and its participants”.
Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer, MAS, said: “Since 2016, SFF has been the go-to platform championing challenges and solutions faced by the global FinTech community. SFF 2020 is no exception. We are scaling the delivery of world-class discussions for 24 hours over 5 days, bringing together world and industry leaders to address key issues globally to support pandemic recovery and help society get back on its feet in 2021 and beyond. Through our strategic partnership with Ecosystm, we will leverage their global research capabilities and network of industry experts to curate discussions and content for SFF. We look forward to working with partners including Ecosystm to create compelling content experiences that attendees have come to expect at SFF each year.”
