September 2022

The third edition of Global Fintech Fest (GFF) was organized by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), the Payment Council of India (PCI), and the Fintech Convergence Council (FCC). It was a hybrid event held on September 19-22, 2022 at the Jio World Convention Center in Mumbai.

The theme for GFF 2022 was 'Creating A Sustainable Financial World - Global | Inclusive | Green'. The event was also streamed live around the world via a fully interactive virtual platform. The objective was to create the world's largest Fintech event, showcase India's unique affordable, inclusive, sustainable and equitable model for global Fintech leadership, and generate thought-provoking content and shared learning opportunities for the Fintech ecosystem across the world.

Globally, Fintechs are innovating and adapting newer technologies to make a fast, positive and scalable impact on people's lives. Policymakers, on the other hand, are working to facilitate this change systematically, securely and in the long term. Adoption of these technologies is being driven by collaboration between Fintechs, government and corporations.

GFF 2022 featured a panel discussion with Enrico Lodi, Managing Director of CRIF, Navin Chandani, Regional Managing Director, India & South Asia, CRIF, S Ramann, Chairman & Managing Director, SIDBI (Small Industries Development Bank of India), Nitin Chugh, Deputy Managing Director and Head of Digital Banking and Transformation, SBI, and Sameer Shetty, Head of Digital Business and Transformation (DBAT), Axis Bank.

These leaders had an insightful interaction where they shared their vision on harnessing the Digital Financial Ecosystem to empower India toward sustainability.
