The inaugural edition of the World FinTech Summit aims to gather, discover and explore the in-trend discussions that will drive Saudi’s FinTech initiatives in ways unparalleled to others across the world. Taking place on 6 December 2021, the summit will gather elite FinTech leaders, solution providers, FinTech experts and investors from across the world to share their innovative, cutting edge solutions and services with a wide range of participants from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Why the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia?
Technological advancements, improvements in financial products, competition in financial services, and regulatory backing are all fueling a new wave of FinTech companies, start-ups, and investments that have caught the interest of the public.
FinTech and associated technologies have been used extensively in the country recently. Indeed, Vision 2030 has pushed for a more diverse and effective financial sector to support the country’s economic growth, which has resulted in the creation of the Financial Sector Development (FSD) programme, which has accelerated FinTech adoption.
“Financial technology (FinTech) companies and large financial institutions (FIs) alike are looking to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to fuel their expansion. The World FinTech Summit is a one-of-a-kind event that will bring together top financial institutions and FinTech companies from throughout the globe to debate and explore the future of payments in Saudi Arabia,” said Mithun Shetty, CEO of Trescon.
