Upcoming Webinar

Fintech in Southeast Asia – More Wall Street or More Silicon Valley?

Fintech in Southeast Asia is the only sector set to nearly double funding in 2020 compared to 2019.

Out of 109 Fintech startups in Southeast Asia, 35 startups are now valued at more than $100 million.

Ant Financial is the most anticipated IPO of the year at a rumoured $250 billion, which would make it roughly the 5th largest “bank” in the world.

Fintech is not only impossible to ignore but too important not to understand.
