Jakarta, 20th October 2023: While the stakes are soaring high, fintech companies in Indonesia are vying to get on top and dominate the FSI market. With the World Financial Innovation Series (WFIS) scheduled for 24 – 25 October 2023, fintech buyers are coming in the hundreds to the country’s foremost FSI event and take back the best solutions for their firms. Furthermore, the platform will also be powering an Awards & Gala Dinner to reward and celebrate the best of FSI on 25 October from 5 pm to 9 pm. Jakarta’s most iconic 5-star hotel, The Ritz-Carlton Jakarta, Pacific Place has been chosen as the venue for the 2-day event. As a long-standing annual platform, WFIS over the years has emerged as the home turf for Indonesia’s leading fintech companies to demonstrate their thought leadership and cutting-edge solutions.

Debuting this year with their stellar solutions at the exhibition arena and a keynote session during the conference, the industry giant IBM is leaving no stone unturned for a massive display of their expertise. Meanwhile, Roy Kosasih, President Director of IBM Indonesia, expressed his views, “The market of generative AI in finance is projected to reach $9.5 billion globally by 2032. Organizations today, especially in financial services, are under immense pressure to act now or risk falling behind AI-augmented competitors. To fully realize the potential of AI, the technology must, however, be built on a foundation of trust and transparency.”
“IBM Indonesia is working with banks and financial institutions to help them derive the full benefit of AI in increasing efficiency, automating processes, and improving customer experience. With ethical AI governance in place, we ensure Indonesia organizations will stay competitive in the digital era while meeting regulatory requirements”, he added.
