Asia has seen explosive growth in financial technologies, with China at the forefront due to its domestic tech giants’ fierce competition and its rapidly expanding middle class. Already deeply entrenched in their saturated home market, Chinese companies have started targeting local users outside the Chinese mainland, making its Asia-Pacific neighbors a promising Fintech hub in the near future. The rapid rise of the Fintech industry has posed an unprecedented challenge to the traditional financial industry, as well as to regulators, who have struggled to calibrate their oversight over stability, security and user privacy.
- How can policymakers strike a balance between regulation and innovation in the Fintech industry?
- How can regulators contain the “winner-takes-all” style of expansion by leading internet firms which may undermine competition and hinder innovation?
- How can private Fintech companies give greater consideration to the public good when building financial infrastructure?
- What can initiatives such as virtual banking and open banking bring about to build an extended financial services ecosystem?
- How can regional countries enhance financial connectivity and regulatory coordination to maximize the benefit of financial innovation while mitigating the potential risks?

Technology is booming in Asia. Tech companies in the region have transformed from followers to trendsetters, leveraging digital innovations such as big data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence to foster economic growth and social inclusion. A sharp rise in venture capital and private equity investment has helped produce the region’s first set of unicorns. It’s estimated that total venture capital investment in Southeast Asia tech companies hit $3.4bn in the first six months of 2019, up more than 300 per cent from the same period a year ago. About $4.8bn in M&A deals in tech were done in the first half of the year, running at a quicker clip than in 2018, during which a total of $6.1bn in deals were done.
- How can companies make tech accessible by the many and improve well-being in such areas as education, healthcare and eldercare?
- How can investors identify technological innovations that are transforming business landscape?
- How can tech companies make the use of data reliable and ethical?
- How will tech companies tackle barriers in trade, investment, regulation, among others, as they expand international footprint?
- How should tech companies adopt and invest in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) to ensuring quality and sustainability of growth?
