617. Insights: How banks paved the way for a Singapore fintech revolution

Benjamin Ensor is joined by some great guests, from F10 and JiPay, to deep-dive into the Singapore fintech ecosystem!

Our expert host, Benjamin Ensor, is joined by some great guests to break down how fintech currently operates in Singapore.

In the decades after gaining independence in 1965, Singapore rapidly developed from a low-income country to a high-income country.

With this, came a push for better financial services and the island nation has established itself as one of Asia and the world’s key financial hubs.

So today we’re talking about how things look in 2022, what challenges there are still to overcome, and what’s next for Singapore's ecosystem?

This week's guests include:

  • Jonas Thürig, Head, F10 Singapore
  • Dayana Yermolayeva, CEO & Co-Founder, JiPay
