SME Finance Forum Immersion Program 2020:

DBS, Singapore

(by invitation only)

The SME Finance Forum's Immersion Programs are aimed at providing our members with 1-2 day exposure visits to high performing regional or global financial institutions or fintechs to gather in depth knowledge about an innovative aspect of their operations. The immersion visits will allow members to hear practical first-hand accounts from the host institution about the unique challenges they faced and the motivation and process for change, as well as lessons learned.

The Forum will host an immersion program to DBS, Singapore, on a date to be confirmed. Headquartered in Singapore, DBS is one of Asia's leading banks with over 9 million customers in 18 markets. To continue staying at the forefront of the industry, DBS has been using digital technology and innovation to extend its reach and enhance efficiencies. During the two-day program, participants will learn about DBS' digital transformation journey.
