With a turnout that literally had the entire financial services industry under its grasp, the World Financial Innovation Series (WFIS) got off to a massive start at The Ritz-carlton Jakarta, Pacific Place on 24 October 2023. The platform was inaugurated by none other than Indonesia’s very own regulatory body for FSI, Otoritas Jasa Keuangan (OJK) which was represented by Asep Iskandar (Department Head of the Financial Sector Technology Innovation, Digital Assets and Crypto Assets Regulation and Licensing – OJK).

I think there is a great opportunity for the world to learn from Indonesia and for Indonesia to learn from more matured markets.”
On the other side, through the interactive panel discussions and thought-provoking keynote presentations, the delegates gained the latest insights from coveted FSI & Technology executives and cultivated a deeper understanding of evolving fintech dynamics and trends.
