Gracing the virtual event were Professor David Lee, Co-founder and chairman of GFI, Professor Tsui Kai Chong, Provost of SUSS, Professor Zhao Xiaoju, Dean of SIIFC. The signing ceremony was also witnessed by Mr Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

The signing ceremony was host by Dr Tan Chong Hui, Head of Finance Programme of School of Business at SUSS, Professor David Lee, Co-founder and chairman of GFI, Professor Tsui Kai Chong, Provost of SUSS, Professor Zhao Xiaoju, Dean of SIIFC, Mr Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) make speeches at the ceremony.

Professor David Lee, Co-founder and chairman of GFI, who presented the opening speech said, “With the acceleration of digital transformation in the financial services industry, the Chartered FinTech Professional (or CFtP) qualification will help promote professionalism in the global FinTech industry. In addition, it will provide career opportunities for professionals from other industries who aspire to make a career in Fintech. We look forward to collaborating with SUSS and SIIFC to realise the huge potential of fintech and demand for fintech talent, especially as Singapore and several cities in China, including Shanghai, are pushing towards becoming leading FinTech hubs. The CFtP qualification consists of two levels, covering topics on finance, financial technology, applications and professional practice. Candidates will be awarded the qualification only upon successful completion of all assessments for both levels, as well as satisfying experience requirements.”

Professor Tsui Kai Chong, Provost of SUSS said, “This MOU reflects SUSS, SUFE and GFI’s desire to offer high quality FinTech accreditation opportunities to professionals in the growing FinTech industry. This strategic partnership will also allow SUSS to tap onto GFI’s expertise to enhance its FinTech training and learning capabilities. We are excited by the rich opportunities this collaboration offers, and look forward to working closely with GFI and SIIFC.”

Professor Zhao Xiaoju, Dean of SIIFC, said, “In August 2019, the People's Bank of China issued the ‘Financial Technology Development Plan’ and Shanghai established the goal of building a FinTech center. Meanwhile, many provinces and cities in China, such as Beijing, Shenzhen, Guizhou, Hangzhou, Qingdao have issued plans or policies to support the development of FinTech. A large number of facts reflect the huge potential of the FinTech market, and also indicate that the market will have a huge demand for FinTech talents. It is an honor to participate in the initiation, establishment and construction of the CFtP program together with GFI and SUSS. The SIIFC of SUFE has held the International FinTech Conference for five consecutive years since 2015 and achieved significant influence over both academia and industry. Also, we are one of the first universities in China that have launched undergraduate programme (in 2018) and master program (in 2019) in FinTech. I hope that more and more people pay attention to and participate in the CFtP program, working together to make due contributions to the training of FinTech professionals, the construction of a healthy ecosystem for FinTech industry, and the steady development of global financial technology.”

Mr Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) said, “As the global FinTech industry enters a stable growth stage, it is crucial to establish a consistently high-quality and professional workforce that will charter this path of progress with the highest distinction in the FinTech profession. I am delighted that the Chartered FinTech Professional (CFtP) qualification will help to promote a high standard of professionalism in the FinTech industry. This tremendous effort by GFI, SUSS and SIIFC will build future charter holders who are recognised globally for their commitments to serve the FinTech industry with strong roots in empathy, purpose and inclusivity”.

After the speech, Professor David Lee, Co-founder and chairman of GFI, Professor Tsui Kai Chong, Provost of SUSS, Professor Zhao Xiaoju, Dean of SIIFC signed on the MOU as a representative of the three parties.
