AS a global financial node with high number of technology users, Singapore is already on the global radar as a major international fintech hub. It is therefore not surprising that fintech’s disruptive potential has been in sharp focus here.

Fintech promises the delivery of more efficient, customer-centric and transparent financial services. Fintech platforms are also more nimble, able to adapt and customise the delivery of services quickly.
