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

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. From new payment services and digital bank regimes to the launch of a crypto-asset trading platform by a major bank, Singapore saw traditional financial institutions playing an increasingly important role in fintech innovation.

In this episode of Connected With Latham, part of our “Fintech Focus” series, Hong Kong counsel Simon Hawkins, Global Co-Chair of the firm’s Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Task Force, speaks with Singapore partner Farhana Sharmeen about what we learned from Singapore in 2020, and what we can look forward to in 2021.
