ASEAN’s FinTech sector discussed with MAS and Prudential

30/04/19

A combination of FinTech disruption, fast-growing economies and a young, urban and digitally-savvy population are driving a financial services revolution across the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

To discuss these dramatic changes and what they mean for trade and investment in the region, Asia House welcomed Damien Pang, Deputy Chief FinTech Officer at the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), and Wilfred Blackburn, CEO of Prudential Singapore, for a briefing held as part of UK FinTech Week 2019.

Chaired by Asia House Chief Executive Michael Lawrence, the discussion saw Pang outline the FinTech environment in Singapore, while Blackburn gave the view from Prudential on how developments in FinTech are shaping business decisions.

The wide-ranging briefing also saw questions from Corporate Members on topics including data, regulation technology and ASEAN integration.

The briefing was held as part of UK FinTech Week 2019 – a series of events aiming to tackle the sector’s most pressing issues, from international collaboration between FinTech Ecosystems to Brexit and Open Banking.

Asia House is holding a roundtable discussion for Corporate Members on Wednesday 1 May focusing on Abu Dhabi Global Markets and its aims to become a financial services hub for the Belt and Road Initiative. Read more about the event.
