Fintech summit held

Bangladesh Fintech Summit recently witnessed the staging of its second edition virtually, stating that it aimed to unlock the true potential of finance for people, community and society.

The two-day summit was themed "Shaping Future of Finance for People", says a statement, adding that one objective was to provide collaborative space to fintech companies to share learning, success and failure with peers.

Another was to initiate policy dialogues for a proper framework for future fintech companies to thrive sustainably and nurture an ecosystem for Bangladesh to benefit from the associated global movement.

The summit consisted of five keynote sessions, four insight sessions, three panel discussions and two case studies with international and local industry leaders.

"Financial sector is the major part of an economy and Bangladesh is doing quite well in its development process," said Prof Shibli Rubayat Ul Islam, chairman of the Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission.

"Bangladesh is gradually developing and we are experiencing a remarkable growth," he said.

"For the last couple of years fintech is gaining momentum in Bangladesh," said Shariful Islam, founder and managing director of Bangladesh Brand Forum.

"Viable innovations are coming forward, solving problems in a very effective manner, and we hope this momentum will grow in the next couple of years," he said.

An initiative of Bangladesh Fintech Forum, the summit was organised by Bangladesh Brand Forum. LankaBangla Finance was the title partner while the summit was powered by Guardian Life Insurance.
