25th August 2017: Fintech Security Summit 2017

Singapore has been rushing to reinvent itself as a financial technology hub and with the flexibility of their regulatory structure; it is only a matter a time that they achieve this feat. The intersection of Digital Technologies and financial services has paved the way for exciting and innovative changes in the market. However, the key challenge which threatens the momentum of this growth is “CYBER SECURITY”. The dynamism and complexity of the digital financial ecosystem demands a robust plan against cyber-attacks. While technology is helping enable enormous progress in bringing financial services to the many people who have previously been excluded from the formal financial system – Do we really have a national cyber security infrastructure to support this growth? Join EC Council at the FinTech Security Summit scheduled for the 25th August 2017 at Singapore to find out. As the relationship between technology and financial services deepens, so do the threats posed by increasingly sophisticated hackers. No market is directly affected by it more than the financial services. With this conference we will focus on creating a dialogue between important stakeholders of the market on topics like developing a vibrant ecosystem, becoming a safe financial center, cloud and IoT security. With the pace of technological upgrades in the market, it is obvious that the role of the security professionals has undergone a massive change. From being technical heads to strategists in the organizations, security professionals have had to up their game to be in sync with the modern day trends of providing flexibility of access to your consumers while safe guarding your back end systems. At the FinTech Security you will witness a discussion and debate on some of the most promising technologies poised to change the financial services sector of the ASEAN market.

10th – 11th October 2017: Insurance Distribution Forum Middle East

Posted on August 17, 0740

10th – 11th October 2017: Insurance Distribution Forum Middle East

Despite economic headwinds and lower oil prices, insurance markets in the Middle East have remained resilient due to two of the region’s largest markets, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), having an excess of US$10b each in gross written premiums — underlining the region’s increasing significance to global insurance markets.   As the Middle Eastern markets continue to mature in increasingly competitive environments with price and margin pressures, the relatively low levels of penetration present both a challenge and an opportunity. The regional penetration rates remain lower than in most of the world’s emerging markets despite showing an impressive double digit growth rate in the last five years. Despite these conditions, the insurance industry is growing at a faster rate than the rest of the economy.   In keeping with the robust growth pace of this sector in the region, The Insurance Distribution   Forum Middle East 2017 will define the key issues that are driving the region’s insurance penetration rates along with highlighting the strategies for success in this sector.  Event Topic Highlights  Distribution Regulations, Life & Family Takaful Distribution Strategies, Multichannel Distribution Strategy, Retail Insurance In GCC, Analytics Infrastructure.  Speakers at the Event  Stefano Nalin Chief Distribution Officer Al Rajhi Takaful KSA  Atinc Yilmaz Chief Executive Officer Marsh Emirates Insurance Brokerage LLC UAE  Kamal Chhabra, President – Life, Affinity, Bancassurance & Personal Lines, Union Insurance– UAE  Tabrez Farooquee, Head of Bancatakaful & Marketing, Takaful Oman Insurance SAOG – Oman  David Harris, Director – Distribution, RSA Insurance United Arab Emirates & Bahrain  Aman Pal Singh, Head of IFA Business, Metlife – Gulf UAE  For more information click HERE.     For more event details contact:   Manohar Bharwani  Head of Marketing  E: manohar.bharwani@fleming.events  T: +971 4609...

16th – 19th October 2017: Sibos 2017 Toronto

Headquartered in Toronto, Canada’s financial sector is recognised as one of the world’s strongest. In 2014, the country’s banking system was ranked #1 in the world for financial strength by Moody’s. Toronto’s reputation and its financial institutions are underpinned by Canada’s ranking as the world’s soundest banking system six years in a row by the World Economic Forum (2008-2013). A rich heritage The city’s flourishing financial services industry is powered by a multilingual, multicultural, and diverse talent base – with its population speaking over 100 different languages. The name ‘Toronto’ derives from Native American language, and the city is a patchwork of former colonial villages, featuring a number of historical sites. Toronto to this day remains a mosaic of many cultures, which span Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa and the Pacific. A celebration of innovation Toronto also boasts an innovative economy. More than a quarter of all Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in financial services is related to FinTech. R&D activity is greater than in any other single jurisdiction in Canada. The city’s mix of stability and innovation ensures that Toronto is the ideal host for Sibos 2017, as thousands of delegates come together to discuss the future of the industry. This will be the second Sibos to take place in the city, following its successful debut in 2011. Sibos will be held in the midst of significant celebrations, with 2017 marking Canada’s 150 year anniversary. The Metro Toronto Convention Centre is well-suited to an event of Sibos’ scale. As the only venue to have hosted both a G20 and a G7 summit, it’s used to welcoming leaders from around the world. The team is comprised of top-class event professionals, from highly-rated convention services staff to an award-winning culinary team. A city of opportunities The convention centre is within a 10 minute walk of most of the city’s major attractions. It’s served by convenient and accessible transport links, so delegates will have the opportunity to explore Toronto’s avant-garde architecture and bustling shopping districts. At night, the city comes alive with a wide range of arts and entertainment that reflect the myriad cultures. The famous harbour front cityscape, set against Lake Ontario, is dominated by the CN Tower – the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere. Take a trip to the top for a fresh perspective of the new...

And only about 35 % of the 82 million Egyptians have access to a bank account.  The North Africa Future Banking Forum (24 – 25 October 2017, Cairo, Egypt) will focus on the key themes shaping the future of the region through a number of engaging sessions with several networking opportunities with industry professionals, leaders & experts.  Event Topic Highlights  Financial Inclusion, Fintech Ecosystem in The Egyptian Market, E Wallets, Mobile Banking, Retail Banking Strategy, Cyber Security, Risk & Compliance  Speakers at the Event  Eng.Khaled El Attar, ICT Infrastructure Director, Ministry of Communications & Information Technology (MCIT)  Frederic de Melker, Head of Retail Banking & Wealth Management Retail Department, Emirates NBD S.A.E.  Abeer Khedr, Director of Information Security, National Bank of Egypt  Tarek El-Sherif, Head of Information Security, Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait – Egypt  Walid Nagy, General Manager Retail Banking, National Bank of Kuwait – Egypt  Dr.Sherif Hashem, Vice President for Cybersecurity, National Telecom Regulatory Authority  For more information click HERE.
