Dates: Thursday-Friday, 1-2 November 2018 

Location: Marina Mandarin Hotel Singapore – Marina Mandarin Ballroom, Lobby Level
(6 Raffles Boulevard, Marina Square, Singapore 039594)

Objective: This flagship annual event of ASIFMA is a high-level, industry-wide event, providing a unique opportunity for global and regional policy makers, senior regulators and industry representatives from both sell side and buy side to meet and discuss important issues impacting the development of Asia’s capital markets.

Continuing the collaboration from last year, we are once again working in conjunction with the EU-Asia Financial Services Forum hosted by IOSCO Asia-Pacific Regional Committee and the EU Commission that will take place in Malaysia on 31 October 2018 (the day prior to our annual event, and one-hour flight from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore). As such, many of the heads of regulatory agencies in Asia and senior EU Commission officials will be in town and this will continue to substantially increase the overall profile of this year’s event.

Aligning this annual event, ASIFMA and Afore Consulting will co-host the EU-Asia Financial Services Dinner Reception in a separate venue (Aura Sky Lounge, National Gallery Singapore) for selected senior regulators, institutional investors and dinner sponsors on Day 1 evening.

Program format: Two-day conference with keynote speeches, panels, concurrent roundtables and networking sessions.

Speaker: Global and Asian policy makers, regulators, central banks, industry experts and senior representatives from sell-side and buy-side communities.

Sponsorship: To effectively engage this esteemed audience and connect with the global and regional community, various sponsorship packages with speaking slot inclusion and advertising opportunities are open to ASIFMA members and non-members for more brand and marketing exposure as well as increasing lead generation.

Delegate profile: Expecting 400-500 high-level regulators, policy makers, industry experts, sell-side and buy-side representatives, initially by invitation and then marketed to a wider audience.

Delegate fees: Admission is complimentary for selected senior regulators, institutional investors, corporate treasurers and confirmed speakers. Discounted rate at USD850 applies to members of ASIFMA and the conference endorsers (original price at USD1,000). Sponsorship packages include a fixed number of delegate passes. Individual registration for the EU-Asia Financial Services Dinner Reception may not be available but subject to sponsorship.
