Financial Insights (an IDC Company) brings to Asia the #rd Annual Financial Technology Conference and Exhibition.

Financial Insights is the world’s leading provider of independent research services, custom consulting, case-studies and best-practice white papers, focusing on the business and technology issues, in the financial services community.

Analysts at Financial Insights expect several markets in the region to show greater than 30% growth in technology investments in the next few years. As this pace of growth intensifies, industry practitioners will be increasingly compelled to look at issues pertaining to a coherent IT strategy that supports the financial institution’s business goals.

FinTech Asia 2007, incorporating the Asia Financial Technology Congress 2007 and the FinTech Showcase 2007, will see the most prominent gathering of key decision makers from the financial services sector in the Asia-Pacific region - underscoring how much more growth in technology investments is yet to be expected among Asia's financial institutions. The interesting line-up of sessions will cover the most critical issues pertaining to the creation and implementation of an effective technology strategy.

To be held in Singapore, which has itself seen the emergence of best practices in the effective use of financial technology, the conference aims to foster a community where industry peers can come together to address the burning issues in the Asian financial services industry, acquire fresh insights and exchange ideas on how to propel the industry forward.

Additional Information

BRIDGING THE BUSINESS AND TECHNOLOGY DIVIDE The integration of business and IT within financial institutions has brought with it a growing appreciation for the strategic importance of financial technology. Today, all aspects of a financial institution are reliant upon some form of technology, from customer service to risk management to product development and rollout. Integrating delivery channels, business continuity and back-end settlement systems all depend on technology and sophisticated business processes. Few understand this better than Asia's most dynamic financial institutions, which are rapidly investing to prepare themselves for aggressive future growth. As legacy technologies are replaced, institutions find themselves with new opportunities to expand business operations, improve efficiency and derive significant competitive advantage. While the technologies themselves are important, savvy executives realize that the process changes accompanying these investments are even more crucial. New technologies provide opportunities for efficiency, transparency and cost reduction, but there are still questions about how to leverage them to improve business performance. In addition, there are a growing number of regulatory mandates that further challenge institutions to employ technology as part of their compliance regime. Showcasing some of the best global and regional best practices, this congress will provide a unique opportunity for more than 300 industry peers to gain insight into these and other related issues. Organized by Financial Insights (an IDC Company), FinTech Asia 2006 will focus on the business strategies and technology best practices, which will enable successful institutions to achieve their business objectives, save cost and increase profitability. This two-day event will showcase thought leaders and practitioners from across the global financial and technology industries and promises to provide delegates with actionable information across a range of compelling topics. The conference will also feature groundbreaking research by our team of Financial Insights analysts concerning emerging financial technologies, the evolution of technology ownership as well as the business value of information technology in financial services institutions.
