Refinitiv at the Singapore FinTech festival

See how data and technology can help the community get back on its feet in 2021 and beyond.   ​

Sustainability and the COVID-19 recovery ​

The Singapore FinTech festival went digital, global and bigger than ever. On the back of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 event brought the community together to focus on recovery, creating a robust infrastructure for a digital economy, and enhancing sustainability and green finance.

As one of the leading providers of sustainable finance data and solutions, Refinitiv was at the heart of this conversation. We discussed ways that ESG driven investments can drive better returns, how sustainable infrastructure development can kickstart economic recovery, and why it’s time to take the rise of “Green Crime” seriously.
