SINGAPORE: Marvelstone Group will host a global FinTech summit in Singapore on March 16, 2017 to bring together FinTech gurus of the region. The FinTech Global Summit aims to serve as a platform for learning, interaction and engagement with global FinTech minds. The summit will feature discussions on the latest innovations in technology that are fueling the growth of FinTech.

To tie it all together, the latest in cybersecurity development and regulatory measures that aid the growth of the sector will also be brought forward. Key speakers at the event include Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer at the Monetary Authority of Singapore and Neal Cross, Chief Innovation Officer at DBS Bank.
The day-long event will be conducted in the form of talks and panel discussions, while also allowing attendees to network and learn about the present developments that are shaping up the future of FinTech. It will take place at what is known as the world’s largest FinTech hub, LATTICE80, which was launched in November 2016 and has quickly become the center of the FinTech community in Singapore. Joe Seunghyun Cho, Chairman of Marvelstone Group, said, “Fostering a strong sense of community within the FinTech world has always been the vision behind Marvelstone Group’s activities. We started off as a private equity business at the core, but soon dived into complementary businesses to facilitate the building of knowledge, relationships and strength. This, I believe, will provide enhanced value to our partners, investors, companies we invest in, and other key stakeholders. FinTech Global Summit in Singapore is a culmination of all these ideas and we are excited about it.” The event is being held in partnership with IBM, Osborne Clarke, Sparksystems, JEDTrade, TransferTo and Finalytix. Singapore Fintech Association (SFA) is supporting the summit as a strategic partner, LTP is the Knowledge Partner and DEALSTREETASIA™ is the media partner. It will be followed by an after-party at swanky rooftop venue called ‘Skyline’ on the floor 44 of the Singapore Land Tower.
