The world’s largest FinTech Festival took place in Singapore on November 13-17 and was attended by more than 30,000 participants from over 100 countries.
Organized by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), in partnership with The Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS) and in collaboration with SingEx Holdings, the second edition of the Singapore FinTech Festival created a platform for connection, collaboration, and co-creation for the FinTech community around the world.
