Banking Frontiers has been organizing Finnoviti, a conference cum awards function, to recognize and reward innovations in the Indian Banking, Financial Services & Insurance (BFSI) industry. Finnoviti 2017 will be the fifth edition of this well received event among the banking and financial services fraternity. For Finnoviti 2016, we had received more than 185 nominations from 80+ organizations in the industry. Through judicious and transparent elimination process, we could identify  25 top innovations for final consideration of the awards.

We hope to make Finnoviti 2017 different. We hope to get involvement of 100 plus organizations and we are targeting 200+ nominations for the awards. A conference, which will ensure knowledge sharing among the stakeholders of the industry, will be followed by the awards presentation. The conference will see presentation of case studies, explanations and elaborations on the innovations and exclusive panel discussions on key topics that concern the BFSI industry.
