About Southeast Asia's FinTech Sector
Southeast Asia’s fintech sector is among the fastest-growing in the world, with expected market growth to reach between $70 billion and $100 billion by 2020. Southeast Asia is particularly primed for the rise of payment technologies, as three-quarters of the adult population remains unbanked. Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) customers rank among the most willing to use fintech products, with 82% open to the idea in comparison to 77% in North America and 76% in Europe. Singapore is at the forefront of the digital payment market, as it has long been a leader in smart cities, hyper-connectivity, and all things tech.
This year, FinTechs from across Canada will be attending the Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) in Nov. 2019 - one of the largest gatherings of the global Fintech community in the world where the 3rd edition of SFF saw over 45,000 participants, from 130 countries in 2018. Organised by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, in partnership with the Association of Banks in Singapore and SingEx Holdings, the festival was supported by Deloitte, Google Cloud, GIC and Prudential.
