All eyes on Singapore
By Teamspirit on Thursday, 17 November 2016
Singapore is hosting the world’s largest fintech event this week, bringing together 11,000 participants from over 50 countries.
Singapore is keen to boost its profile as both a fintech hub and as a gateway to the Asian market.
One of the biggest draws of the festival has been the Lab Crawl, for which 20 banks and financial services firms have opened their innovation labs for tours and talks, including Aviva’s Digital Garage, where AI chat boxes and pay-as-you-use insurance are being explored.
We think the Singapore festival is an exciting and timely reminder that fintech is now a truly global sector.
