CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

Financial technology is transforming banking in Asia, making it more accessible and efficient for everyone. While the traditional banking industry suffered a lot due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the fintech industry managed to further grow. The pandemic has once again shown how important the fintech industry is for regions like Asia. The pandemic accelerated the use of digital wallets. In just two years, consumer usage rates of FinTech-powered services have doubled, and in some cases tripled, across key Asia-Pacific markets.

Asia is one of the fastest growing fintech markets in the world. The main position of the fintech industry in the region is to empower and support the digital transformation of Asia. Fintech has already changed the way people live and do business, make payments, store their funds, invest, or even buy products, but this is only the beginning. The sector is accelerating and enhancing financial inclusion. Increasing the financial inclusion directly contributes to GDP growth and creates more income and employment.

Women in Finance and Investment Network is about taking action to bridge a generational gap in our industry. It’s surprising to read about various reports profiling the widening gap between males and females at the apex of the leadership of the Finance and Investment industry, yet with little action. At WIFIN, we aim to address this under-representation of women in the industry with the hope to evolve the public perception of what an expert in these related fields looks like.

With a global network of women in the Finance and Investment space, we strongly believe that such increased visibility of today’s finance and investment female professionals will motivate the next generation of talent to aspire to these roles.

We aim to achieve this objective through series of dialogues, correspondences, webinars, meet-ups, and conferences as well as special programs together with our partners.
