We are halfway through the year, but there are still a handful of informative, engaging, must-attend events addressing fin sec and fintech trends/developments coming up in Silicon Valley. These seminars, summits, and networking events are a must for industry executives and CEOs to gain insights into the current financial sector and what the future holds.

Attending any of the following will fortify a leader’s skill set and knowledge regarding how Silicon Valley is now the engine under the hood of the financial industry.

M2Banking & Fintech LATAM 2016


Fintech in Latin America

August 17th – 18th, 2016

Mission Bay Conference Center, San Francisco

This event coming up next month addresses the ripe, burgeoning mobile banking industry available in Central and South America. Our neighbors to the south are moving full steam ahead with a focus on adopting the most modern technologies available for banking and non-traditional money management alternatives.

The emphasis of this conference is on how to take advantage of the enormous opportunities that Latin America provides for the fintech industry, and how mobile technology is transforming Latin America’s banking sector from strictly financial institutions to digital solutions service providers.

Topics include how to incorporate mobile technology into the banking sector, improving customer relationships and retention rates, the latest fintech developments in Latin America, and how to set an efficient and accurate roadmap for expansion into Latin America.

This is a not-to-be-missed event with an emphasis on fun, just as much as education. Tickets are available at three tiers of event access from the website.

Private Investment Fund, Operations and Compliance Forum West

Establishing the Blueprint for a Compliant and Cost-Efficient Fund

August 25-26, 2016

Marine’s Memorial Club, San Francisco

Designed as a one-stop shop for private equity and hedge funds, this conference held by Financial Research Associates is aimed at maximizing organizational efficiency while educating executive officers on how to minimize overall operational costs. The key company staff that this conference is designed to cater to are officers, accountants, attorneys and consultants.

The event will be divided into two topical sessions: general efficiency and cost saving methods for organizations, and breakaway funding-type specific sessions. The breakaway sessions are further divided for either private equity and venture capital firms, or for hedge fund managers.

Among the general session topics attendees will take away insights into industry compliance, security and fraud avoidance, auditing, and efficiently managing internal expense allocation.

Tickets are available at a single tier for all participants.

Banking Disrupted Conference/SV Fintech Week

A Disruptive Leadership Summit

Conference: September 14-15, 2016

Fintech Week: September 12-16, 2016

Banking Disrupted – Silicon Valley Elk’s Lodge, Palo Alto

SV Fintech Week – Silicon Valley Innovation Center, Palo Alto

With ten panels over the course of the first two days featuring over 40 speakers, this leadership summit is not only immersive, but vital for venture investment professionals, banking executives, and fintech entrepreneurs. Over the past four years, capital investment into the fintech industry has increased by 600%, and one of the primary questions this summit seeks to answer is whether this is simply a bubble about to burst, or the end of traditional banking as we know it.

SVIC is offering two options for those eager to learn about how the fintech industry is evolving: Banking Disrupted Summit and the SV Fintech Week.

Bound to be two of the most comprehensive and engaging industry events of the year, Banking Disrupted/SV Fintech Week addresses every facet of the rapidly shifting and evolving banking/money management sector, and how professionals can take advantage of present conditions, along with an ear to the ground and eye to the future.

FinDEVR Silicon Valley

The Premier Event for Fintech Developers

October 18-19, 2016

Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara

Formerly known as FinDEVR San Francisco, the 2016 FinDEVR event will bring together the brightest and most eager minds in the fintech development sector. Featuring banking/finance industry heavy hitters such as Wells Fargo and Bloomberg to fintech titans like PayPal and Google (amongst dozens of other notable companies), over 600 attendees are anticipated to attend FinDEVR Silicon Valley this October.

FinDEVR Silicon Valley 2016 is comprehensive to say the least, addressing the following industry topics:

  • Latest fintech tools
  • technologies
  • APIs
  • fintech platforms
  • case studies
  • tutorials

Catering to the younger, fresher generation of fintech entrants, FinDEVR has an emphasis on fast-paced, value-packed 15 minute presentations. Attendees won’t need to worry about their attention span wearing out, as presentation sessions are interspersed with high-impact networking sessions.

If you are a fintech developer, VP of engineering, software architect or CTO, FinDEVR is an essential. There are two tiers of tickets available on the event website, priced for developers and non-developers respectively.

According to CEO and founder Bill Dwight, a 2015 attendee, FinDEVR’s “high-paced development grind lends itself to a certain amount of technical tunnel vision. FinDEVr is a great way to force us to poke our heads up, take stock of our colleague’s latest efforts, and discover new ways to collaborate.”
