February 3-4, 2025
Golden Gate Club, San Francisco
Fintech Retreat is a curated, intimate fintech gathering designed to facilitate meaningful, high-value connections and business opportunities among tech providers, financial institutions, and government entities

About Fintech Retreat

Fintech Retreat redefinse the essence of intimate gatherings, curating an exquisite experience for a limited audience of only 300 participants.

Top Regulators and Executives, including Managing Directors, VPs, CxOs from fintechs, venture capitalists, representatives from financial organizations, legal luminaries, and regulators are actively delving into business opportunities, establishing strategic partnerships, and dissecting solutions to the most complex Technology and Regulatory Challenges.

During the retreat, participants are immersed in off-the-record panel discussions offering a rare glimpse into the unfiltered opinions and perspectives of the industry leaders.

This is not just another conference, it's an all-encompassing, curated experience where the boundaries between the stage and the audience blur, creating an environment where relationships flourish. Participants gain exclusive access to heads of Regulatory Agencies and Private Sector leaders, engage in meaningful discussions, and foster connections during curated networking.

Fintech Retreat gatherings rethink the traditional conference setting. You will exit the confines of large conference halls and impersonal hotel rooms, and enter secluded, informal locations that offer an ambiance that encourages genuine connections to thrive.

Fintech Retreat is organized by the Financial Club. Learn more about The Financial Club here.
