Emerging Fintech Forum

Supported by a global leadership team of industry experts focused on driving innovation and collaboration, the Emerging Fintech Forum was established to facilitate local and international business interactions within the fintech and payment sectors - and foster a truly global culture of financial inclusion and diversity.
