19th August 2019, SINGAPORE: Ecosystm, the disruptive technology research and advisory firm, has today announced the signing of an agreement with the Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF). The engagement will see Ecosystm working with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and The Association of Banks in Singapore to be the official Thought Leadership Partner for this year’s SFF. SFF is organised by MAS, in partnership with The Association of Banks in Singapore and in collaboration with SingEx.
As part of the engagement, Ecosystm will work with MAS to publish a report and organise a series of Leadership Roundtables at the SFF to bring key global stakeholders – including government leaders, international policymakers, leading academics, economists, and global & local business leaders – together for talks, encouraging knowledge-sharing in order to explore how to better support financial innovation and inclusion for positive socio-economic impact. The Roundtables will be focused on high impact areas including Sustainability & Climate Change, Diversity & Inclusion and Exponential Technologies.
As a precursor to the SFF, Ecosystm will also work closely with MAS to convene a day-long event in Wellington, New Zealand on the 17th September 2019. The event, to be held in association with the New Zealand Government, the Singapore Government, NZTech and FinTech NZ, will focus on greater economic collaboration between Singapore and New Zealand. In May 2019, the Prime Ministers of New Zealand and Singapore signed an Enhanced Partnership Agreement that provides a framework to support greater bilateral cooperation across a number of high impact areas including technology and innovation, and stronger people to people links.
The event will include a component led by New Zealand’s High Commissioner to Singapore highlighting the Enhanced Partnership between the two nations. It will also explore key themes of this year’s SFF, and how the two economies can better share data insights for greater economic co-operation and FinTech innovation. The event will see a strong Singapore and ASEAN delegation in attendance, including government leaders, policy makers and industry leaders.
Commenting on the engagement, Amit Gupta, CEO & Founder, Ecosystm said: “Innovation thrives on cooperation, and the coming together of different ideas – we can learn so much simply by analysing how nations around the world approach challenges. In our mission to democratise research, we view this as a great opportunity to be able to contribute to the broader industry ecosystem, leveraging the acclaimed Singapore FinTech Festival to create a platform where the world’s leading minds can exchange their visions of the future. We look forward to enabling further discussions for Singapore with other nations, starting with our friends in New Zealand.”
Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer, MAS, added: “The Singapore FinTech Festival has grown to become the world’s largest FinTech gathering, acting as a global gateway for leaders in technology, innovation and enterprise to connect and collaborate. We are delighted to be working with Ecosystm on this engagement and anticipate a great result through collective thought leadership at the SFF Leadership Roundtables.”
This year’s Singapore FinTech Festival will take place from 11 – 15 November. For further information, please visit: https://www.fintechfestival.sg/
