Investment – Internalization - Integration: Optimizing Fintech through Combining External and Internal Synergies
The BFSI industry is driving the fast-paced changes in investment, integration and internalization within Singapore’ fintech industry. The synergies derived over the last two years of regulatory and capital support has now started transforming to a consolidation of stakeholders and their collaborative patterns.
The questions that are becoming clearer include: should we invest in own digital strategies or invest with external partners? Or should we acquire start-ups? How much exposure can we provide to our native APIs? How will the industry be disrupted by automation? Which new and emerging segments can yield better ROI?
But complex queries still remain: how can we internalize the partnerships? How to secure the owned-data and assets? What are the emerging trends which will take the industry to next level – on technology, collaboration, funding and regulations?
Questex Asia’s annual FinTech Innovation Forum will cover completely new ground by introducing interactive sessions to provide latest movements, trends, regulations and tools in the fintech and allied space.
