The annual gathering, which was organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and its non-profit partner Elevandi, connects thousands of people and businesses in the fintech sector in Singapore and globally. This year, the focus is on "Building Resilient Business Models amid Volatility and Change", with activities being held from 2 to 4 November.


The event looks to tackle how fintech companies are striving to stay resilient and viable amid the global surge in inflation and the looming threat of economic slowdown. Key stakeholders, from government leaders and regulators to entrepreneurs and tech executives, will discuss the topic, answering three key questions:

  • Viable: How are organisations building and redefining business models that can be more resilient to volatile market conditions?

  • Responsible: How are organisations balancing corporate responsibility and profitability in order to achieve greater stakeholder satisfaction and engagement?

  • Inclusive: How are organisations designing inclusive business models that cater to the needs of the unbanked and underbanked?

Some of the esteemed guests this year include Adrienne A. Harris (Superintendent of the New York Department of Financial Services), Angel Zhao (President of International Business for Ant Group), Annabelle Huang (Managing Director of Amber Group), Anthony Tan (Co-Founder and Group CEO of Grab) Brian Armstrong (Co-Founder and CEO of Coinbase) and Changpeng Zhao (Founder and CEO of Binance), among others.

Eight Italian companies will also be showcasing their latest cutting-edge artificial intelligence and latest smart technologies. According to Ms Rossella Gentile, Deputy Ambassador of Italy to Singapore, the Italian FinTech ecosystem has enormous potential and is attracting increasing investments and talents. The Italian Government has also invested 11.44 billion euros for their digitalisation and innovation in order to strengthen their research and development centres for FinTech, big data, quantum computing and other key technologies.


“As the leading global knowledge platform for FinTech, SFF 2022 will focus on bringing best-in-class experts to share industry insights to build business models that remain viable and resilient amid the crisis," said Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer of MAS and Chairman of Elevandi Board.
