A Fintech Bridge represents a bespoke agreement outlining collaboration between two governments, cooperation between regulatory bodies and connectivity between two markets and ecosystems. This encourages the sharing of information, including emerging trends and regulatory issues, with counterparts and discussions around areas of best practice.1
The world’s first Fintech Bridge agreement was signed in 2016 between the UK and Singapore. There are now 46 fintech cooperation agreements globally, of which the UK has five official agreements, all with countries in AsiaPac.
This journal gives global fintech entrepreneurs practical advice and guidance on how to leverage Fintech Bridges and expand into a market where an agreement with the UK exists. It also provides market entry assessment on the UK, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Singapore and South Korea.
As a leading fintech community and platform, FINTECH Circle is focused on global partnerships with an aim to empower fintech entrepreneurs world-wide with knowledge and insights to scale up their businesses.
