The SFF is the world’s largest FinTech event that brings together leading experts from around the world to discuss opportunities and challenges for the FinTech sector. Last year, over 60,000 attendees from 140 countries attended the 5-day-event, including heads of state, financial and technology leaders, FinTech founders and investors.

The 5th edition of the SFF will run from 7 to 11 December 2020, featuring a unique hybrid format that combines a 24-hour online event platform with over 40 events in Fintech hubs around the world. 

Switzerland has confirmed to host two satellite events, as it is a unique opportunity for Switzerland to showcase its strengths as an innovative and competitive financial center to a global audience.
