Going Further, Together

In-Person Congress with Live-Stream | 23 & 24 March 2022
Framework Episodes | 24 March 2022

The Chance To Go Further Than What Was Thought Possible Before

In 2022, we are going further, together. The Asia/Pacific financial services industry will not only see the acceleration of recovery, but also the chance to go further than what we could have possibly imagined in our universe.


This bravery of going further together embodies the spirit of the Asia/Pacific region's best financial institutions and their leaders in overcoming the challenge of the past two years. This great fortitude was matched by a series of good decisions – on everything from business processes, to risk management, to capability-building of people, and of course, to overall strategy – that made banks and insurers thrive despite crisis conditions.


Banks and insurers are thus set to thrive even more in the year to come. Of course, the adoption and best-use of the digital technologies of our time proved that digital does deliver.

Future-Ready Core: Building a Strong, Secure, Stable and Scalable Foundation

Cyrus Daruwala

Managing Director, IDC Financial Insights Asia/Pacific

Andrew Tan

Group Managing Director, Silverlake Axis

Financial institutions in Asia/Pacific understand the need and value of digital core banking, yet they’re concerned about the implementation risks on its “business-as-usual” (BAU) operations. Hence, we’re seeing financial services in the region beginning to go “modular” to gain a digital advantage, rather rip-and-replace their core. How do we build a future-ready core system while ensuring BAU?

  • Change Management: Ensuring sufficient training and support to manage new banking system
  • Straight Through Banking: Building a core system that adapts to the open banking landscape
  • Partnerships: Building future-ready core together

As environmental, social, and governance (ESG) topics gain traction globally, we see financial institutions shifting their focus from profits to people.

As such, the financial services industry in Asia/Pacific is stepping up efforts to incorporate ESG principles in their businesses. Financial institutions are starting to embrace digital workflows and new data processing as they look to map an optimal path forward to a future model of sustainable finance.

It's time we start talking about security.
