Singapore Fintech Festival 2022

Discussing future drivers for growth

This year’s Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF), to be held between 2 and 4 November 2022, comes at an important juncture for the fintech sector. The festival’s theme of “building resilient business models amid volatility and change” could not be more appropriate for the challenging times we are living through. Today, the world is experiencing conflict and change, high inflation, rising interest rates and persistent uncertainty – and in this difficult period, fintech innovators need to be thinking ahead.

At Netcetera, we believe these challenges will create opportunities for the technology industry – whether by simplifying people’s lives, making complex technologies more accessible, or by anticipating and responding to future developments in the digital economy. Three years ago, we decided to open an office in Singapore because we wanted to be at the heart of Asia’s world-leading fintech economy, bringing our high standards of creativity and technology to one of the world’s most dynamic markets.

Our team in Singapore looks forward to welcoming you to our booth, which is part of the Swiss Pavilion. While we’re proud of our Swiss roots, we see amazing growth opportunities in the Asian market in the years ahead. We’re looking forward to working with companies from across Asia to share in the opportunities this growth will bring. Singapore has more technology companies per head of population than any other country in the world, according to Findexable’s Global Fintech Index – and we see SFF 2022 as the ideal opportunity to exchange ideas and share our vision of the future with other firms.

Some of the drivers for change we’re looking forward to discussing at SFF 2022 include:

Sustainable digital transformation for our customers at high speed

Sustainable digital transformation for our customers at high speed  – one of the promises inherent in digitalisation is that life is made easier – but is this always the case? If technologies aren’t robust and resilient – or flexible enough to fit end users’ needs – then do they really make life simpler? As a software company, we have long experience in solving complexity for our customers. We see SFF 2022 as a great opportunity to share our experience and learn from others. Our aim is to reduce friction by offering products which are always available, even if the customer does not notice their presence.

Driving business model innovation

You hear the term everywhere in payments these days - “as a service.” Behind the buzzwords, Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions have helped companies all over the world to streamline and modernise their operations, bringing new products and services to market faster and at lower cost than developing bespoke solutions in-house. As a global leader in the provision of SaaS solutions, among others, we have deep knowledge and experience to bring to these discussions.

Agile learning organization from top to bottom with strong processes

As an agile organization that learns fast, we understand the importance of anticipating customer needs and responding to those needs with products and services that work. To achieve this, we collaborate with international standards organizations to better understand changes such as developments in PCI DSS standards and the 3DS transaction security standard. Being involved with standards bodies means we’re up to date with the regulation before it comes into force and can take the compliance strain away from our customers.

As a global leader for digital solutions, we are looking forward to the opportunity to discuss these themes and more during SFF 2022. Netcetera is a global software company with cutting-edge IT products and individual digital solutions in the areas of secure digital payment, financial technologies, media, transport, healthcare, and insurance. More than 2,500 banks and issuers and 160,000 merchants rely on the digital payment solutions and globally certified 3-D Secure products of the market leader for payment security. Founded in 1996, we have around 1000 employees located across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hall 5, 5B23 at SFF 2022!
