KUALA LUMPUR, 2 November 2021 – Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) announced today that it is organising its flagship fintech event – MyFintech Week 2022 (MyFW 2022) from 24 to 28 January 2022. The second edition of the event will be held in a virtual format and welcome more global participation.

With the theme ‘Advancing Digitalisation for Recovery, Sustainability and Inclusion, the event will bring a unique focus on the importance of sustainability and digital technology in reorienting the role of finance to help economies rebuild towards a more inclusive, resilient, and sustainable future. It will also coincide with the launch of the Financial Sector Blueprint 2022-2026, which will chart the priorities of Malaysia’s financial sector in the next five years.

Speaking on behalf of the MyFW 2022 organising committee, Suhaimi Ali, Bank Negara Malaysia’s Director of Financial Development and Innovation said, “Innovation and digitalisation will continue to shape the financial sector landscape and contribute towards a more robust and sustainable economy for Malaysia. The fintech industry in Malaysia has accelerated rapidly in recent years, evidently from the 164% increase in the number of fintech companies in 2020 from 2017[1], as well as the widening array of solutions introduced in the market from e-KYC, e-remittance to digital insurance.”

“At the same time, we saw digital payment transactions grow 44% to 4.5 billion in Jan-Aug 2021 period compared to the same period in 2019 before the pandemic. In addition, QR registration by businesses has increased from 333,952 pre-pandemic to more than 1 million as of the first half of 2021, driven by strong online and contactless payment demand during the pandemic. Given these developments, it’s a great time to discuss the emerging trends and strategise for the next level of growth and development,” added Suhaimi.

MyFW 2022 will bring together more than 80 visionary and leading voices in fintech and digitalisation, together with sustainability experts, and target to generate engaging discussions that lead to actionable insights. These meaningful engagements will be anchored by seven key priorities for the financial sector, namely Sustainability, New Realities for Finance, Economy, Inclusion and Financial Health, Resiliency, Startups and Regulations.

Similar to the inaugural event, MyFW 2022 will also feature two parallel tracks of fintech innovation challenges. Organised in collaboration with KPMG and 1337 Ventures respectively, this year’s innovation challenge will focus on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)-aligned innovations to help advance Malaysia’s sustainability agenda in the financial sector. MyFW 2022 will also see several satellite events in collaboration with key partners and more than 60 exhibitors from the industry and around the region showcasing the latest fintech products and services.
