​Finance Learning Festival@ Lifelong Learning Institute (11-12 Nov)

Following the launch of the IBF-MAS manpower study on the impact of automation and data analytics on the financial sector workforce in April this year, the IBF launched the new Skills Framework for Financial Services on 27 Sep 2019. 

In conjunction with the Singapore FinTech Festival on 11-15 Nov 2019, the IBF is specially curating a learning journey for its members that will begin at the Lifelong Learning Institute and culminate at the SIngapore FinTech Festival. The journey will start with a short talk on workforce transformation, covering how jobs will change in the financial industry and the key skills that will be in demand. Participants will be encouraged to adopt a growth mindset for career progression and then proceed for a number of short 30min bite-sized learning in key skills and innovation in thematic training rooms. At the end of the training, participants will be provided with a visitors pass to the Singapore FinTech Festival to learn more about the  latest developments in FinTech as well as the opportunities available. 

Due to space constraints, we will be conducting this learning journey for participants in groups of 100 pax per session. We expect to do 2 sessions per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. As the event is open to all IBF Member FIs, we have allocated 11 Nov (am/pm) for Banks and 12 Nov (am) for Asset Managers and 12 Nov (pm) for Insurers for ease of planning. Each session is expected to take 2.5hours. An outline of the programme for each session is shown below.
