Finally Fintech in Singapore

Moving to Singapore about four years ago, I was frustrated by Singapore's banking sector.

But lately, I can count quite few Fintech innovations that has made life better:

  1. TransferWise is available in Singapore - ok, it does require a silly F2F process for MAS but finally I don't have to take cash to Malaysia!!
  2. Singtel Dash makes remittances easier for my helper
  3. Ez Pay which IIUC allows linking topups to your bank account
  4. Singapore FAST payments instant bank transfers
  5. Apple Pay - no need to carry my tired OCBC Visa card with me
  6. Stripe Singapore finally launching

It feels like all of a sudden, Singapore really is Asia's Fintech hub!
