AFF is Asia’s premier platform for global leaders in government, finance and business to exchange insights, intelligence as well as to explore business and investment opportunities.

As a part of the forum, its Deal Flow Matchmaking Session connects sources of funds with sources of deals from around the world via one-to-one meetings. Over the years, 6,500+ meetings have been arranged for 4,500+ companies and investors, including investment project owners, private equity firms, high-net-worth individuals and senior professionals from intermediaries and professional services providers.

In addition, the Fintech Showcase, FintechHK Startup Salon and InnoVenture Salon in the AFF feature a plethora of financial innovations, cutting-edge solutions and game-changing business ideas to facilitate business collaboration and empower entrepreneurs and startups.

Against the backdrop of a gradual global economic recovery, the upcoming edition of AFF discusses key issues reshaping the ever-changing economic landscape and how the industry can achieve the goal of a sustainable future under the overarching theme "Navigating the Next Normal towards a Sustainable Future". Realising sustainable and inclusive development through impactful investment and business strategies will undoubtedly be of great interest to the AFF community. The AFF's Honorary Advisors and Steering Committee consisting thought leaders with wealth of expertise provide guidance to make the AFF goes from strength to strength.
