    The 2ND FINTECH SUMMIT, in association with the Dubai Financial Services Authority (DFSA), will bring together BFSI decision makers that want to win in their industry by digitising processes, securing critical assets, analysing data and making tactical decisions.

    Naseba has been working with the BFSI industry since 2003, and has recognised the tremendous shift in business models and consumer attitudes driven by technology.

    The summit is a culmination of this experience and will deliver actionable solutions to business, strategic, and technological needs of BFSI enterprises.

    While the MENA region remains a technologically sophisticated BFSI market, many financial organisations are still missing the digital innovations that are radically changing business models and redefining customer experiences.

    The summit will facilitate knowledge sharing, high-level networking, and most importantly, pre-scheduled one-to-one business meetings between BFSI leaders and top-tier solution providers who are ready to transform the digital future of BFSI enterprises in the region.

    Banking is being transformed by powerful forces. Digitalisation, demanding customers, competition from unexpected quarters, cyber attacks and constantly evolving regulation. Banks that fail to adapt quickly to these trends will be left behind, or perhaps even fail. But those that embrace change by re-writing their strategies and implementing new operating models will open up a whole new world of opportunity.

    Senior executives from banks in the region and further afield – as well as financial regulators, consultants and others – will come together to discuss the major challenges the industry faces. Through keynote addresses, panel sessions and on-stage interviews, our speakers and panellists will explain how those challenges can be harnessed to profitable effect. Delegates will have the chance to ask questions during the Q&A sessions, and have plenty of time to network during morning registration, the refreshments break and lunch.

    If you want to know how banking is being disrupted, and the risks and benefits it is creating, join us in Abu Dhabi on 22 November.

    How can banks better manage one of the costliest and most troublesome activities – complying with regulations?

    With FinTech taking the region by storm, RegTech (regulatory technology) has emerged as a separate industry sector from FinTech as regulatory compliance is time-consuming and expensive for both financial institutions and regulators – and it’s only going to get worse!

    RegTech solutions try to address these challenges and are expected to go through a significant transformation under the effect of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, block chain, big data analytics, biometrics and more.

    RegTech MENA, held on 5 of December 2017 Dubai, will provide a comprehensive understanding of the drivers behind the rapid rise of RegTech, what RegTech means for financial institutions today, and how the sector is likely to develop. It will provide essential learning for any company looking at the RegTech space as a way to manage their regulatory compliance tasks and reduce operational risks while saving money and time.

Corporate enterprises today do not typically ignore the latest technological trends entering their sphere. But how swift they are to adapt, respond and manage these trends by flexing their strategies an area worth exploring.

    With InsurTech focusing on a consumer centric approach to the challenges faced by the insurance sector, riding on the strength of big data, artificial intelligence and machine learning, the time is now for evaluating InsurTech and its short and long-term impact on the insurance market.

    InsurTech MENA will provide a forum for examining these challenges, and their counter oppurtunities too, arising from the interplay of the latest disruptive technologies,the regulatory regimes governing the regional markets, and the new entrants into the InsurTech space.

    Kuwait-An Introduction to Fintech

Our fantastic trainer, Hadyn Jones, has a unique investment banking, IT and regulatory background and a great ability to demystify complex subjects such as distributed ledgers or payment systems.

    The purpose of the session is to present the origins of the FinTech movement and explain why it is different from other purely technology trends. In particular, as an ‘explosion’ of ideas, FinTech represents a potent disruptor to the traditional financial platforms, and therefore, the question of how best to most effectively leverage it, will be addressed.

    Some of the cases studies covered will include m-Pesa - Payments, Saudi Monetary Authority - Ripple Payments, Mizuho - AI Compliance, , Gamification - Spark Profit, CITI Bank - Digital Banking. Importantly, the session will discuss the role of the sandbox, and how your own organisation can make use of them as part of your own FinTech journey.

    Kuwait City

    IFN Kuwait Forum 2021One of the top five leaders globally for Islamic economy development, Kuwait is a force to be reckoned with. The Arab state’s Shariah finance influence is anchored in robust fundamentals: proactive regulators putting in place a holistic legal architecture through various reforms and measures. Such efforts have rewarded the State handsomely: today, Kuwait is home to a thriving Islamic banking market, a vibrant capital market and promising Takaful insurance segment.

    And Kuwait is showing no signs of slowing down. In 2020, the government voted in favor to establish a Higher Committee of Shariah Supervision at the Central Bank of Kuwait to boost governance, standardization, and progress. Increasingly more corporates are embracing the Shariah finance proposition, and along with Islamic financial institutions, are actively playing their part to grow the market.

    Against this backdrop, IFN is excited to host the 8th IFN Kuwait Forum. Gathering a high-level of the industry’s leading experts, the Forum will be a platform of intellectual and pragmatic discussions on the future of Islamic finance in Kuwait, and how the Gulf country can maximize the industry’s potential to meet its Kuwait Vision 2035.
