The Global Fintech Institute (GFI), headquartered in Singapore, is a global professional credentialing body dedicated to creating greater collaboration, advocacy, ethics and knowledge for all Fintech professionals.
It aims to empower members and the community to leverage Fintech for growth and transformation, through engaging the community in the latest trends, issues and development in Fintech; facilitating collaborations with and knowledge-sharing among regional and international Fintech organisations; promoting best practices and co-developing standards and governance guidelines for the fair use of Fintech, and providing education and training to build industry capabilities and groom talents in Fintech.
GFI, SIIFC of SUFE and SUSS have collaborated to jointly develop and offer the Chartered Fintech Professional (CFtP) qualification since 2020.
On 14 July 2022, GFI, Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and SUSS signed a Memorandum of Understanding to co-build the Small and Medium Enterprise Financial Empowerment Programme (SFE Programme).
The SFE Programme aims to create an international digital financial knowledge digital hub that is spearheaded by MAS, with SUSS being the founding academic partner to provide academic leadership on the SFE Programme as it grows globally to be adopted by other leading institutions.
The MOU undergirds the intention to collaborate with MAS and GFI on knowledge content development in finance technology, digital economy and financial empowerment for SMEs, in the endeavor to augment Singapore’s position as a global financial learning hub.
