In addition to the exhibition, the program also provided opportunities for our team to connect with other leaders and experts and share their deep regulatory expertise and knowledge.

DeepTech Deep Dive: Opportunities in Singapore and Southeast Asia
As part of the UK FinTech Week 2019, Cynopsis Solutions’ CEO and Co-founder, Chionh Chye Kit, attended the DeepTech Deep Dive: Opportunities in Singapore and Southeast Asia on 30 April. Jointly organised by Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and Prudential, the program provided a platform to discuss trends and opportunities at the cross-section of Southeast Asia’s FinTech and DeepTech ecosystems.
In addition to a panel where industry experts had gathered together to share how AI products are evolving and being adopted by the region’s financial services sector, the group discussion that was led by Prudential and Cynopsis, alongside with other Singapore-based FinTech firms, was also another program highlight.

Edinburgh FinTech Day
Following Chye Kit’s group discussion session at the DeepTech Deep Dive: Opportunities in Singapore and Southeast Asia, Avere Hill, Cynopsis’ CEO and Co-founder (EMEA) was invited to attend the Edinburgh FinTech Day on 2 May. Jointly hosted by FinTech Scotland and Scottish Development International (SDI), the event showcased the Scottish Financial Technology (FinTech) Ecosystem and demonstrated how Scotland is serving as a base for FinTech companies that are expanding into the UK market.
Over the years, Scotland has grown to become one of Europe’s leading financial centres and has developed into a growing global FinTech hub. It is also now home to many FinTech firms spanning the full spectrum of financial technologies from payment to Blockchain, from open banking to Regulatory Technology (RegTech).
The one-day event gathered audiences from the Scottish FinTech community and visiting firms, providing a platform for the audience to gain further insights into two of the world’s leading FinTech ecosystems – Singapore and Hong Kong. Speaking at the panel session, Avere took the opportunity to discuss the Singapore FinTech Ecosystem and share with the audience his views and perspectives on Singapore’s FinTech landscape. In light of the SG-UK partnership established just last year, Avere has also mentioned how the partnership will help foster and increase collaboration as well as learning opportunities between the two countries going forward.
