Singapore and Denmark Sign Fintech Cooperation Agreement  

2017.07.05

A new fintech cooperation agreement aims to build bridges to promote innovation in financial services and assist fintech companies with expanding abroad.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority (Danish FSA) has signed a fintech cooperation agreement which aims to help fintech companies in Singapore and Denmark to expand into each other’s markets.

The agreement aims to help fintech companies in both countries expand into each other’s markets and also to provide facilitated introductions when a fintech company operating in one country wants a better understanding of the rules in the other country.

In addition, the cooperation agreement framework will enable regulators to share information about financial services innovations, reduce barriers to entry in new jurisdictions and further encourage innovation in Singapore and Denmark.

Thomas Brenøe, Deputy Director General of the Danish FSA, welcomes the new agreement: “The FSA is committed to encourage innovation in the financial sector. We are currently establishing a FinTech Lab to support the development of fintechs and provide assistance for these to set up business in Denmark. Financial innovation is not confined to national borders, and we are therefore delighted to enter into this agreement with MAS. This agreement will ensure cooperation between the Danish FSA and MAS and will foster opportunity for businesses in Denmark and Singapore to grow.”

“Denmark offers a unique combination of a centrally located global hub of world-class innovation, a vibrant start-up ecosystem and most importantly an easy place to do business in. The heart and soul of this lies in a Fintech Lab, where Copenhagen Fintech has set up a unique co-working space - a home to banks and start-ups alike, where focus is on knowledge sharing and network building. The recently concluded fintech week saw over 1000 people visit this lab and take part in a series of carefully planned events,” adds Shanker Subramaniam, Country Manager – India and Singapore at Invest in Denmark.
