Episode 13 — Fintech Focus: How Did Singapore Solidify Its Position as a Leading Fintech Hub in 2020?

December 18, 2020
Fintech market participants have reason to be optimistic about the latest regulatory and market developments in Singapore.

In 2020, Singapore solidified its position as a leading center of fintech innovation, as the country continued to advance legislation and regulations to facilitate innovation and hosted the world’s largest fintech event in December.
