IFN iNNOVATE is a gathering of the leading forces of Islamic finance digital innovation and transformation built to inspire new ideas and promote a culture of innovation within Islamic financial institutions and start-ups to thrive in the digital era.
Focusing on digital innovation in the Islamic finance space, IFN iNNOVATE is a platform for ideas to germinate as leaders in Islamic finance transformation gather to share, discuss and explore the latest digital trends. The one-day interactive event will deep dive specific fintech verticals across the different segments of the Islamic finance industry: banking, Takaful and capital markets. Designed for incumbent innovation leaders and emerging agile start-ups, IFN iNNOVATE provides networking opportunities for meaningful business connections with the industry’s brightest minds.
What are the major challenges and opportunities facing banks in their digitization programs and strategies for the adoption of financial technology? How is digitization within regional banks driving effective segmentation and the development of ever more efficient product delivery channels? What does deep-tech such as artificial intelligence and machine learning offer, who are the major players and how are they changing financial services in the region? Where and how can FinTech play a meaningful role in key Islamic social financial activities such as Takaful, Zakat and Waqf?
We examine the rise of WealthTech, InsurTech, RegTech and Robo-advisory and ask where and how technology is re-defining Islamic asset/wealth management and insurance. What do tools and platforms such as Blockchain, artificial intelligence and machine learning offer this thriving sector, and how should these be deployed? What challenges do financial technology companies still face in terms of funding, regulation and market penetration? What more can be done by investors, accelerators, governments and regulators to assist and enable today’s financial and investment technology companies?
