The world is increasingly pushing towards sustainable and digital finance and bringing more efficiency into the contemporary financial industry with the power of technology. With a US$96 billion market cap in the first quarter of 2021 powered by Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT/Blockchain), DeFi (Decentralized Finance) has substantially altered the way we perceived finance.
The industry is abuzz with the news of top banks like JPMorgan Chase and Bigtechs like Mastercard or companies like Visa foraying into DeFi, the traditional finance industry certainly must think of new models to compete or adapt to cohabitate with these emerging technologies carving the financial landscape.
AML and Cyber security being heavy on the agenda of world governments, the DeFi may be far from the realms of mass adoption but with the speed at which the industry is developing, and investments being made, the whole financial industry is at the crossroads of major changes.
With Central Banks displaying their commitment towards innovation and financial inclusion with their keenness to adopt CBDC to increase efficiency, bring the cost down and increase financial inclusiveness, the conference aims to discuss the future path and timelines.
The Finance Today Summit, through a series of interactive sessions and forward-looking agenda, will explore some of the most pertinent topics industry is facing and deep dive into the minds of experts and senior executives on what’s on their minds about how the future of finance looks like.
