The Asian Banker Fintech Showcase 2016

As a new element at the Asian Banker Summit this year we are introducing the very first ‘Asian Banker Fintech Showcase – Top Ten Promising Propositions’, designed as a market place for dialogues between incumbent banks and new fintech players whose propositions are beginning to make a breakthrough and are most likely to succeed to make a difference to the industry as a whole.

All submission received will be assessed by the fintech advisors comprising senior decision makers from leading financial institutions and the fintech investor community. The top ten shortlisted candidates will each be invited to make an eight minute presentation to the community of investors and senior decision makers in technology and innovation in the Technology Decision Makers Conference at the Asian Banker Summit 2016.  In addition there will be a write-up of their stories in an Asian Banker special edition in our Magazine.

All top ten candidates will receive certificates of participation signed by the fintech advisors. There will no fees or costs involved for making submission and presentation; however, you would need to bear your own expenses for attending the event. One selected winner will receive a cash prize of US$10,000 and a certificate of recognition.

Evaluation Criteria

Our evaluation of this submission is based on a set of transparent criteria built on top of a belief statement where we construct our understanding of the skills required to excel in the area under review.


Belief Statement

We believe that a potentially successful financial technology (fintech) company is one that has a believable business proposition in solving a real business need, with a potential to cause a fundamental transformation or disruption in the financial services industry and to generate scale across regions. Appropriate financial support from the right investors, as well as having an installed customer or user base are proofs of concept and important evidence that third parties have thoroughly evaluated the proposition and are willing stakeholders. In addition a robust execution capability, strong people commitment, ability to fund its growth trajectory and the drive and vision of the principle promoters are important consideration to its success.
