The ASEAN region is one of the primary geographical areas where financial inclusion is a challenge. According to a recent report on the ‘State of FinTech in ASEAN’ by UOB, more than half of the adult population in the region remains unbanked and the problem is more grim in rural areas.

Fintech companies in the region have a great opportunity to address markets of each country in the South East Asian region – each one unique socially, economically and culturally.

As observed in other developing markets such as China and India, growing internet infrastructure and e-commerce are catalysts to the growth of Fintech starting with payment solutions. EY ASEAN Fintech Census this year corroborates this by finding during their survey that 33% of Fintech startups in the region are focusing on payments followed by lending and remittance solutions coming in at 25% and 21% respectively.

A popular trend in the region is most large financial institutions such as banks are collaborating with Fintech companies by running their own incubators, accelerator programmes, innovation labs and also setup investment funds. Regulators in the South East Asian region are generally seeing as interested in fostering growth by responding positively to the needs to startups.

Initiatives such as educational institutions working with industry leaders to ready trained homegrown talent while there continues to remain a strong reliance on foreign talent in the region are taking shape. Surveys suggest an expectation of stronger support from government in the form of tax incentives for investors in growing companies.

Singapore remains the hottest market, seeing a mix of both local and foreign Fintech companies establishing a office in the country. Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand follow closely – a young population with increasing internet penetration makes them favourable for growth. Cambodia, Laos, Philippines and Vietnam still remain in their nascent stages. LATTICE80’s FintechDB currently tracks over 730 startups in its Beta while still porting data on more from just within the ASEAN region.

In this report, we identify a few people who are actively involved in the growth of the Fintech industry in the South East Asian region. This list of influencers – picked from our database of over 200,000 individuals – has startup founders, government and regulatory leaders, members of financial institutions, advocacy groups and investors.

 

Countrywise breakdown:

Singapore – 66, Malaysia – 11, Philippines – 11, Thailand – 6, Indonesia – 2, Myanmar – 2, Cambodia – 2
