Fintech Week 2021 was a fully virtual 4-day conference, which addressed the most pressing challenges in the fintech sector and looked at what is next for financial services. As Covid-19 continued to cast its shadow of upheaval, the accelerated digitisation of the economy that it triggered has given rise to a plethora of opportunities for the fintech sector, and placed it firmly in the spotlight. The conference focused on the key role fintech will play in the recovery period and post-pandemic. Following the normalisation of relations between Israel, the UAE and Bahrain we were privileged to have ADGM and DIFC as headline sponsors and with Bahrain, we looked at what the new relationship will bring to the region and wider world, and what we can learn also from Emerging Markets, especially LATAM. We delved into the issues and opportunities that lie ahead and what the sector must do to build on the momentum, bolster financial services and provide intrinsic value for all.
Our 4th Fintech Week looked at how business models and innovation would need to adapt to drive success over the coming decade. There was focus on emerging technology, digital assets, big tech and customer engagement. We also looked at how digital transformation is transforming payments, banking and insurance. We welcomed OpenFin as headline sponsor. Open Banking was a key theme, having recently been adopted by Israeli regulators. We were also happy to welcome the UK's Financial Conduct Authority, first time taking part in a conference in Israel, who shared a stage with regulator the Bank of Israel.
