FINTECH ISLANDS ANNOUNCES NEW GLOBAL EVENT IN THE CARIBBEAN

The Caribbean will welcome some of the biggest names in the fintech world this October to its first-ever global fintech summit. The Fintech Islands Experience (FiX 2022), produced by the US-based FinCAP Global LLC., takes place in Barbados from October 5 through 7 at the Hilton Barbados Resort.

Attendees will participate in a three-day schedule of thought-leadership panel discussions, one-on-one meetings and unique networking events that allow them to make business connections while experiencing local island culture. The content programme will feature 100+ world-class speakers sharing insights on financial inclusion, climate fintech, embedded finance, Web3.0, cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology and decentralized finance (DeFi).

Chief Executive Officer of FinCAP Global LLC., Allison Hunte, asserts that the time is now for increased fintech adoption and advancement across the Caribbean.

“The fintech ecosystem in the Caribbean is relatively new but evolving rapidly. Across the region, innovative startups are building fintech solutions – from digital wallets to alternative lending and together, the islands represent a substantial market opportunity and an attractive environment for building new fintech companies and expanding existing companies globally.

Our goal at Fintech Islands Experience (FiX) is to connect the global community of founders, investors, corporate executives and thought leaders to their Caribbean counterparts at a time when meaningful collaboration still comes down to getting the right people in the room.”
