The tremendous proliferation of Fintech companies and professionals based in Singapore over the past decade has demonstrated the country’s reputation as a prime Fintech hub in Asia. The diversity of Fintech companies with various business models in Singapore has also grown exponentially, along with an increasing adoption of Fintech by traditional financial institutions.
