Forum of innovative
financial technologies

About the Forum


The forum, which is being held by the Bank of Russia in partnership with IT and financial market leaders, has become the country’s largest platform for the discussion and analysis of trends and opportunities for the use of modern digital technologies in the financial sector.

The forum annually brings together about 1,500 participants from Russian and foreign companies along with experts and government representatives. The forum’s programme includes an exhibition area in which market leaders and young companies present their achievements and plans in matters concerning fintech as well as a competition of fintech startups. The first Fintech Youth Day was also held as part of Finopolis 2017.

Finopolis 2018 will take place on 10–12 October in Sochi.

  • Many thanks for hosting me at FINOPOLIS 2017 in Sochi.

    I was very impressed with the quality and scale of the event and the fintech and banking scene more generally. Having said that, I was even more impressed with the warmth and openness of everyone I met. It was a great experience and I am keen to visit again and maintain relationships going forward. I will certainly be echoing these sentiments socially.
