Malaysia: The Rise of FinTech – Innovation and Disruption

Innovation and Disruption

Date: 15-16 March 2016

Location: Auditorium Connexion@ Nexus Bangsar South, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The Australian Trade Commission (Austrade), in partnership with the New South Wales Trade and Investment, invites you to join our exclusive dialogue revealing Malaysia’s burgeoning financial technologies (FinTech) ecosystem and innovation agenda.

Why Malaysia

In 2015, Malaysia became the first Asia Pacific nation to regulate for equity crowdfunding in its drive to develop the FinTech agenda. Moreover, Malaysia recorded the highest innovation performance amongst middle income countries.

With FinTech no longer limited to traditional centres like Silicon Valley and London, and global oil prices at an all-time low, Malaysia’s ambitions to grow the FinTech sector in recognition of the growing need to reduce its economy’s reliance on energy and foster innovation within its strong capital markets.

Malaysia was ranked 4th globally in financial market development by the World Economic Forum, reflecting the country’s position as a major financial centre and its proximity to a large potential customer base of international financial institutions and end users. Furthermore, Malaysia is strongly connected within the US$2 trillion of global Islamic finance market.

The high levels of digital adoption and internet penetration in Malaysia make it an attractive market for Australian FinTech solutions. The limited FinTech solutions available in Malaysia coupled with growing demand reflect a market opportunity that Australian firms are well placed to access.
