Bridge Forum 2019: Next-Generation Financial Services – Report

Next-Generation Financial Services

At Bridge Forum 2019, we focused on next-generation financial services, bringing together business leaders from Asia and technology luminaries from Silicon Valley. We hosted nearly 120 financial services leaders, including more than 60 C-suites from the world’s leading banks in Asia and the developed markets.

We heard from some of the most esteemed financial services and technology investing leaders, including Reid Hoffman, Sir Michael Moritz, Ray Dalio, Doug Leone, Keith Rabois, Nicole Eagan, Patrick Collison, Alex Rampell, Rob Goldstein, and Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Heng Swee Keat. Participants both gained from the sharing and enriched the discussion with their comments, and we put together a selection of key takeaways from the sessions, available for download.

We hope you will benefit from the perspectives presented as much as we did.

About Bridge Forum

Co-created by GIC and the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), Bridge Forum is a unique experience designed to guide businesses through technology disruption. Global business leaders and technology trailblazers come together to connect, share exclusive insights, and problem-solve through immersive one-on-one sessions. As a platform, we believe that the biggest takeaway one can get is not a business card, but a plan to impact the future.

In 2018, Bridge Forum focused on real estate disruption. We convened more than 70 leading real estate developers at the C-suite level from Asia and 30 real estate-technology start-ups to discuss the way forward.
