Building A Customer-centric Digital Bank in Singapore - A paper from Kapronasia and Equinix

Singapore will become one of the focal points of Asia’s digital banking evolution when the city-state awards digital banking licenses later this year. As a key fintech hub in Southeast Asia, Singapore is a natural starting point for digital banks in the region and was an early adopter of digital financial technology, which laid the groundwork for a dynamic fintech startup scene.

Report Description

No digital bank, in the purest sense of the term, currently exists in Singapore. While there are many fintechs, most provide only digital financial services that do not require a banking license: digital wallet services, cross-border payments and various virtual- asset-focused services. A digital bank (also known as a “neobank” or “virtual bank”) differs in that it is licensed to both accept customer deposits and issue loans, whether to retail customers, corporate customers or both. Singapore’s financial regulator, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) plans to release five
digital bank licenses in total and will announce the successful licensees in the second half of 2020. The licensed digital banks will likely then launch in mid-2021.
