Leaders converge on Bahrain to redefine FinTech


Fintastic Bahrain Week is just a few weeks away, and you don’t want to miss the impactful agenda that will see finance visionaries from across the globe descend on Bahrain to discuss technologies and innovations that are in the vanguard of redefining the financial services industry.

The financial sector across the Gulf finds itself at a pivotal moment in history. An explosion of FinTech innovation and trends like an increasing focus on FemTech empowerment have opened new pathways to business growth and consumer solutions. The Fintastic Bahrain Week events, including a keynote address and interactive discussion with legendary tech entrepreneur Steve Wozniak at the Euromoney GCC Financial Forum, will explore these and other topics that are reorienting the future of financial services.

Here is a taste of some of the Week’s events:

Sunday, 24 February

Monday, 25 February

  • RegFact Conference 2019: Held under the patronage of the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) and organised by the Bahrain FinTech Bay, RegFact offers a platform for FinTech ecosystem partners – from global regulators to policy advocates – to exchange knowledge and collaborate in finding innovative solutions for the enhancement of RegTech practices.

Tuesday, 26 February and Wednesday, 27 February

  • Euromoney GCC Financial Forum: Co-hosted by Euromoney Conferences and the EDB and forming the cornerstone of Fintastic Bahrain Week, the GCC Financial Forum returns for its eighth year to focus on the reinvention of financial services. Kicking off the conference will be keynotes by HE Rasheed Mohammed Al Maraj, Governor of CBB, HE Khalid Al Rumaihi, Chief Executive of the EDB, and none other than global tech giant Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple.
