Asian Financial Forum
WHAT: The 12th Asian Financial Forum (AFF), to be held in 2019, will bring together influential members of the global financial and business community to discuss developments and trends in the dynamic markets of Asia. In 2018, more than 100 internationally respected leaders in government, financial and business sectors gathered for ground-breaking discussions about opportunities and challenges facing Asia. During the AFF Deal Flow Matchmaking Session, one-on-one meetings are arranged between sources of funds and sources of deals. Over the years, more than 3,800 meetings have been arranged for more than 1,800 companies, involving investment project owners, private equity firms, investors, high net-worth individuals and senior professionals from intermediaries and professional services providers. The AFF Deal Flow will continue to match sources of funds and sources of deals, while its InnoVenture Salon will bring together venture capital firms and the entrepreneurial community to explore potential collaboration and examine the pivotal issue of building the start-up ecosystem. Start-ups can showcase their stories and products at the Start-up Zone, meet up with potential investors at the Investor Alley, and present their business ideas at Project Demo sessions. Experienced innovators and professionals will share practical tips on pitching to investors and growing a successful business at Fireside Chat and Startup Clinic. There will also be a Fintech Showcase – a one-stop platform for cutting-edge innovations and establishing new business partnerships. Industry players will lead sector-specific presentation sessions, while project owners will introduce their investment dimensions.
