APIdays Singapore: “APIs, Ecosystems, and Finance-as-a-Service”

Date(s) - 24/04/2019 - 25/04/2019
8:00 am - 6:00 pm



Open Banking is just the start. Digital Marketplaces are changing the way customer value is delivered. Across industries – banking, insurance, payments, wealth management and business services – enterprises and startups alike must build a partner ecosystem enabled by APIs, or make their own services plug-and-play so they can participate in others’ marketplaces.


Asia’s diverse cultures, economies and regulatory environments present challenges for firms wanting to scale their business. Yet these are opportunities for those who have learned to partner to deliver great customer experiences. Building a partner ecosystem enabled by flexible, secure and sustainable Application Programming Interfaces is key.

This is impacting all financial sectors – retail banking, wealth management, corporate banking, payments and insurance. Marketplaces enable customers to plug-and-play the services they need.

We are gathering the best experts and companies on Open Banking and Open Insurance to talk about how banking – and insurance – as-a-service is re-defining how financial services are delivered and consumed, how APIs enable plug-and-play partnerships between large institutions, nimble Fintechs, and firms in the wider economy, and how practices are evolving from having to write integration code for each bank towards emerging standards.
