Burgeoning Fintech Trends in Asia

Burgeoning Fintech Trends in Asia

When it comes to trends, Asia has always been ahead of the rest of the world. Because of this, it’s worth paying attention to the fintech themes that will be popping up at FinovateAsia.

Taking place digitally June 22 and 23, FinovateAsia will highlight discussions featuring the latest thought leaders in the industry. Tickets are still available; book before June 4 to receive a discount.

Here is a highlight of some of the topics you can expect to see throughout the two day event:

Embedded finance

After last year’s transition to digital, embedded finance has more potential than ever. During the panel titled Embedded Finance and the Future of Finance, our experts will address how to harness the power of data and digitization to build new models of finance across verticals and how to empower customers through better offerings. The group will share new models for meeting customer needs, and discuss how incumbent firms fit into the new picture.

The customer experience obsession

Asia is known for its hyper-focus on the customer experience. What are some of the lessons firms can learn from super apps like Alipay that delight customers? Our customer experience panel will discuss changing customer demands in line with the current climate, as well as address how to build successful partnerships and distribution channels with customers in mind.

Empowering ESG

ESG is one of the hottest topics in fintech this year, and it’s no longer limited to investing. The ESG panel at FinovateAsia, titled Leveraging Emerging Technologies to Meet ESG Goals, will assess the activities that can be done around ESG, look at how banks can make ESG a commercially viable product and scale up ESG initiatives, examine how regulators are approaching sustainability, and discuss how sustainability goals are encouraging new ways of partnering.

Cross-border payments and real-time payments

When it comes to cross-border payments, the future is real-time and global. FinovateAsia’s panel titled Integration between cross-border payments systems – The evolution of RTP across Asia will look at what the industry needs to do to support the regulatory agenda and at the additional services and value banks can offer. The team of experts will consider current progress with the interoperability of RTP systems and what the industry needs to do to overcome obstacles.

Partnerships

If there’s one thing we’ve learned in the fintech industry over the past few years, it’s that partnerships are key for survival. In a panel titled, Overcoming challenges and fostering successful partnerships across new ecosystems, we’ll host a range of bank executives as they share expert advice on how banks can best cooperate with startups, make the most of their networks, work quickly without sacrificing quality, and develop an entrepreneurial mindset throughout the organization.
