Institutionalisation of SFF - Elevandi

In 2016, the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s (MAS) FinTech group, intending to host a modest seminar on fostering a global dialogue on the impact of FinTech, accidentally gave birth to a highly successful international event called Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF). In its first edition, it became a runaway success attracting over thirteen thousand delegates, way above its modest goal of gathering a few hundred people, who all came together to discuss the impact of FinTech-led transformation.

SFF's unprecedented growth, both in size and the quality of its content, made it imperative to consider enriching it with institutional strength. Therefore, in August 2021, the MAS announced the creation of an independent legal entity, named Elevandi, to foster an active and open dialogue between the public and private sectors, to advance FinTech further in the global digital economy. A founding team from the MAS FTIG group was selected and transferred to Elevandi to help achieve that vision.
