The Swiss Secretariat for International Finance (SIF) and Elevandi announced the programme and speaker line-up for the inaugural Point Zero Forum, taking place on 21-23 June in Zurich, Switzerland.

Elevandi is a Company Limited by Guarantee (GLC) created by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to manage the Singapore Fintech Festival (SFF).

The forum is organised in cooperation with the BIS Innovation Hub, MAS, and Swiss National Bank (SNB), and supported by Knowledge Partners including Bussmann Advisory, Ecosystm, Finance.Swiss, Milken Institute, Open Wealth Association, and Switzerland Global Enterprise.

Startup Competition venture

Point Zero Forum will serve as the starting point for engaging investors and policymakers with innovators to advance the future of financial services (FOFS).

The forum is an exclusive invite-only, in-person gathering of select global leaders, founders, and investors to develop new ideas to advance the FOFS – decentralised finance and Web 3.0, embedded finance, and sustainable finance.

It also aims to drive investment activity by bringing together leading founders with VCs, private banking clients, family offices, and PE houses.

Attendees can look forward to dissecting regulatory considerations related to each FOFS development by bringing together public and private sector leaders

The forum will be two days of in-depth plenary sessions, deep-dive private roundtables and workshops, and exclusive sessions between founders and investors focusing on two significant new market opportunities built on Web 3.0 architecture.

The Forum will be graced by Heng Swee Keat (Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies) and Ueli Maurer (Switzerland’s Federal Councillor and Head of the Federal Department of Finance).

The sessions will delve into the opportunities present within the crypto market and sustainable finance space.

On the first day of the Forum (21 June), investors are invited to a closed-door session hosted by SIF and MAS.

The session will serve as a precedent for the Forum, where investors will be able to gain a perspective on the global market trends and business opportunities that are shaping the fintech scene, and how these topics will be addressed on the agenda during the main stage.

Also happening on 21 June are open houses hosted by BIS Innovation Hub, Crypto Valley Labs, ETH Zurich, F10, University of Zurich, and ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences.

Registrations for these events are now open on the website.
