Fintech Connect Asia – The Region’s Ultimate Fintech and Payments Summitby Fintech News Singapore September 30, 2021
Fintech and PayTech Connect is coming to Asia for the first time next week on the 5th – 7th October 2021.
Taking place as a hybrid event, speakers and attendees will come together in-person at Raffles City Convention Center Singapore for the pre-day PayTech Connect (5th October), and on the virtual platform for the main conference days (6th-7th October), to discuss innovation in financial technology across merchants, financial institutions, fintechs and disruptors within Asia and the rest of the world.
The inaugural Fintech Connect Asia brings together 500+ industry leading players from Asia’s biggest merchants and financial institutions in an impartial space, with the aim of building a world class fintech division.
Accelerated by the challenges of the pandemic, fintech was one of the few sectors of the economy that showed growth, as billions of individuals and companies across the APAC region moved digital.
With the launch of Hong Kong’s digital banks and Singapore issuing its first digital banking licenses, the focus on digital banking tools, fee structure, and customer experience has been on the rise.
As the industry evolves, one thing for sure is that digital transformation is rapidly changing the industry’s approach to banking, insurance and payments, affecting merchants, banks and buy-side alike.
We have therefore put together a strategy and solution packed agenda, where attendees will hear from, network and engage with all the industry’s leading players – discover where the future of payments and financial technology is headed.
Attendees to Fintech Connect Asia will build relationships and benchmark against the best like never before – with 30+ sessions across the three days, the event facilitates networking opportunities including 1-to-1 meetings, powerful keynotes, enriching panel discussions, roundtables, spotlight on leadership, and much more.
Participants can access live content broadcasts or on-demand sessions.

Hear what the Fintech Connect speakers have to say about the event:
“I am excited to be part of Fintech Connect conference where I will discuss & debate innovation in blockchain technology and decentralize finance, currently one of the fastest growing segments of the industry.
Any person interested in innovation in financial technology and futureproofing across merchants, financial institutions, fintechs, and disruptors from across Asia and abroad, must attend this event.”
said Aly Madhavji, Managing Partner, Blockchain Founders Fund.
“As a result of the ongoing wave of digitalisation, I see two key changes in the banking landscape: (1) greater personalisation and (2) integration with lifestyle offerings, as banks become a one-stop-shop for a wide range of financial and non-financial needs, forming a closed ecosystem.
We are already seeing two distinct pathways emerging; one that is organic and another that is partnership-based.”
said Benjamin Quinlan, CEO & Managing Partner, Quinlan & Associates.
“Online financial frauds and digital payment scams are not exactly new, it has been further accelerated as more businesses are conducted online, even more so with the pandemic still raging globally.
Hence, it is critical that more secure solutions are deployed to mitigate such risks.”
said Walter Lee, Evangelist & Head of Public Safety Consulting, NEC APAC.
