Swiss Federal Councillor Ueli Maurer and Singapore’s Minister of State Alvin Tan open international fintech conference in Zurich

The first international fintech conference, “Point Zero Forum”, will be held in Zurich from 21 to 23 June 2022. As a platform for global leaders from the public and private financial and economic sectors, the forum aims to drive innovation in the digital economy and establish itself as a key event in the international fintech calendar.

Singapore’s Minister of State Alvin Tan

During his visit to Singapore in November 2021, Swiss Finance Minister Ueli Maurer agreed to jointly organise such an event with Singapore’s financial authorities. The Point Zero Forum serves as a platform to connect political authorities, investment circles and innovative entrepreneurs in order to advance the future of financial services. Around 800 guests are expected in Zurich.

From 21 to 23 June 2022, high-ranking international experts will discuss two major new market opportunities that build on the architecture of Web 3.0: tokenisation and sustainable finance, which allow for more efficient and sustainable financial services. At the same time, there will be an open discussion on how to deal with risks such as cyberattacks and financial crime, and how to ensure proper compliance with regulations. The ability to create technological innovation and develop lean regulation in this area is an important factor for the success and stability of the Swiss financial sector. The Point Zero Forum is being held for the first time in this format and is expected to become a permanent fixture in the international fintech calendar.

The complete programme of the three-day forum can be found on the dedicated website.
