It is my greatest pleasure, on behalf of the Organizing Committee to welcome you to attend the FinTech APAC Connect 2017, to be held on September 20-21, in Singapore.
As how new technologies are changing all other industries, they are disrupting financial industry to an unprecedented degree- a fintech revolution is coming. Technologies are transforming and reshaping the existing financial systems to a new future in a way we still do not absolutely certain yet.
Global investment in fintech increased quickly from 2010-2015; although 2016 saw a little decrease, investors’ confidence in this new industry is still very high.
The rise of fintech industry in APAC is breathtaking, and the growth rate in this region is starting to take the lead. The governments of almost all the APAC major markets, such as Singapore, China, India, HK, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Southeast Asia, have taken or are ready to take a positive regulatory approach to encourage fintech developments. And this region will be the biggest potential market for fintech investors, startups, technology providers, as well as other players in the coming years.
The potentials of APAC markets are obvious, while there are still many barriers in the way to fully achieve the fintech potentials, such as regulatory innovation, regional cooperation, technology maturity, costs, risk management, and so on. Moreover, the emerging technologies have cornered the incumbents and it becomes more and more urgent for them to find a way out.
In this sense, a “connect” is badly needed in APAC in terms of regional cooperation, cross-industrial integration and idea sharing. Therefore, the FinTech APAC Connect 2017 comes into place. It’s designed to help your organization to navigate the fintech revolution, and to find the ways out and the ways forward.
I am very much looking forward to meeting you in Singapore!
