The Singapore FinTech Festival

Organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, the Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) is on its 6th edition. Last year’s annual event brought together 60,000 participants from 160 countries – both virtually and in-person – for the development of financial services, public policy and technology.

Our theme for SFF2021 is the impact of Web 3.0 on financial services. Over three days, we will bring together global knowledge sharing from leading academics, practitioners and thought leaders across 45 reimagined sessions covering designing, building and ensuring sustainable financial services for Web 3.0. This year we introduce online learning. While watching SFF, participants can earn a verifiable, digital, Web 3.0 Knowledge Certificate in Financial Services issued by The Asian Institute of Digital Finance, National University of Singapore (NUS).

Back again from 8–12 November, SFF x SWITCH will be a week-long festival for the global innovation community, featuring exciting innovation and technology activities.


SWITCH brings together leaders, entrepreneurs, creators, accelerators and investors from the Global-Asia innovation ecosystem. Through the open exchange of new ideas, vibrant networks and line-up of innovation-centric activities, SWITCH provides a global platform to catalyse collaboration that brings a meaningful exchange across different fields and markets. The focus industries include healthcare and biomedical sciences, smart cities and urban solutions, trade and connectivity, and emerging sustainable technologies. In its sixth edition, SWITCH 2021 will feature various innovation and partner programmes culminating in an exciting hybrid festival featuring conferences, the SLINGSHOT Startup Pitching Finals, showcases, roundtables as well as global partner and networking activities. SWITCH is organised by Enterprise Singapore, and supported by the National Research Foundation. See the agenda for 2021.
