Fintech Abu Dhabi 2019
On 21-23 October 2019, the Fintech Abu Dhabi Festival was held by one of our founding members, Abu Dhabi Global Market. This third edition was an opportunity for the WAIFC members to meet Fintechs from more than 70 countries.
Several topics were at the heart of the discussions. Speakers emphasized the importance of a regulatory framework that would lead to greater technological integration in the financial sector.
Another subject dominating the debates was client data. All experts converged on more optimal use of client data while developing an unwavering security system.
Also, several panels brought together experts in digital currencies and the trend is clear: the volume of transactions in digital currencies is set to become more important than ever. That is why regulation must be well thought out.
The World Alliance of International Financial Centers extends its thanks to Abu Dhabi Global Market for hosting the senior leaders of the WAIFC. They were able to discuss in depth the fundamental topics that will transform our financial landscape.
Please listen to an interview with Jochen Biedermann, Managing Director of the WAIFC, discussing the Festival.
