IFGS 2019 Speaker Spotlight: Arnaud Saint-Paul Founder, Give Nation

What is it about IFGS that brings you back every year? OR What is it about IFGS that has brought you to the event this year?

It is the first time I will participate in your event which seems to be the perfect space to meet key people in the industry.

What is the biggest change you have seen in the FinTech industry over the past 12 months?

We are seeing a clear trend towards Finance with Impact. From governments, to fund managers up to retail banking, the last year has seen the confirmed rise of client requests about the social and environmental impact investments have. Likewise, we observed a definite need in terms of financial literacy at all levels.

Capitalism is becoming more conscious!

What are your go-to reads for industry updates and insights?

My network of conscious entrepreneurs and financiers is my main source of information.

If you could be stuck in a lift with 3 people who would it be and why?

– Dalai Lama, to share about how to foster more compassion in the very fabric of our society

– Greta Thunberg, 14 years old Sweden activist, to shape for the next generation the best social and environmental context for them to thrive

– Bill Gates, to scale the solution to billions through the use of technology and media
