CEO of DBS Bank – World’s Leading Digital Bank
Piyush Gupta is the Chief Executive of DBS Bank – World’s Leading Digital Bank. Since 2009, Mr. Gupta has transformed DBS from a traditional financial institution into the World's leading digital bank.
Whether it is through the adoption of new technology, strategic acquisitions, new partnerships, or diversification, traditional banks are scrambling to respond to rapid changes in consumer behaviour. Since launching its mobile phone-based “disrupter” banks in India and Indonesia in 2016, DBS has signed up more than 2.6m customers via fingerprint technology.
In this gathering of senior leaders at the Baur au Lac in Zurich, Mr. Gupta will share his views on the real threats and opportunities presented by Asia’s rising technology giants such as Alibaba and Tencent. He will shed light on the challenges he foresees for Europe's largest banks, as well as the challenges that stand ahead of the industry as a whole. We will ask him to give his sense of where the unique opportunities lie for Swiss companies in South-East Asia.
