Manila, 03rd August 2023: World Financial Innovation Series (WFIS) is around the corner and attracting banks, fintech organisations and other key FSI players for the second year.
Fintech Philippines Association, the largest financial technology trade association in the country and Digital Pilipinas, the largest private sector-led movement championing to tech up the Philippines are backing the event as its “Supporting Partners”. The event will run for a period of two-days i.e., 22 – 23 August, followed by a glamourous evening on 24 August featuring “Awards & Gala Dinner” to reward the top FSI talents.
Part of Tradepass events, WFIS is fully geared-up to bring the same legacy in the Philippines which it has earlier established in key regions across ASEAN and Africa. Meanwhile, for those looking to participate in the financial services & technology event, the platform is split into conference and exhibition. While the former delves into a highly focused knowledge sharing platform to bring forth the latest information on the most relevant FSI topics, the latter features a space to project cutting-edge fintech products and solutions.
Organisations like Expleo, Onfido, Schneider Electric, SAS, Newgen, BMC, IntellectAI, 8×8, ACI Worldwide, Perfios Software Solution, Provenir, iProov, OutSystems, GBG, Altair, SAP, LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, Feedzai, AI Rudder, Thought Machine, OpenText™ AI Cloud, dzcard and Veefin Solutions have already reserved their exclusive exhibition booth at the platform with some of them even showcasing their thought leadership at the conference.
While the country’s fintech has become a force to be reckoned with and is going towards a projected market value of $44 billion by 2024, the entire FSI community has come to realize its paramount importance. It’s perhaps the reason why WFIS which has always stood for promoting the technology innovations in FSI will be attended by 600+ technology & business heads from the leading Banks, Insurance & Micro-Finance institutions across the country.
