May Newsletter


The finals of the Bambu Fintech Challenge, in collaboration with Singapore Management University, were held last night. The winners, Yong Wei and Cheng Hong, received a 10-week internship at Bambu with the option of full-time roles afterwards. Students were granted access to our API library and attended UI/UX and investment workshops conducted by our team. Their challenge was to create an innovative robo advisory product. Within a week, the winning team created a savings and investment app for students planning on their university fees.

Bambu has been extremely fortunate to have had amazing interns be part of our team, and we look forward to further supporting local FinTech talent here in Singapore.

April Newsletter


Trends as a concept are a challenge. How do you know if you are in a growing industry? You will only know when you can look historically at the outcome. I often get asked how I see the development of robo advisory. Of course, I look at this from the standpoint of Bambu; but the view I get is one of an increasingly rapid shift towards a digital wealth future. 

Across all metrics for Bambu; clients, enquiries from prospective customers, applications for roles, requests to speak at events and innovations of new robo concepts, we have seen accelerating growth every month this year.

We feel very fortunate to be able to serve our clients, and we believe that this is a trend that has only just begun. 

Best regards,

February Newsletter: Bambu wins Fintech of the Year


Bambu wins FinTech of the Year
With the world of finance changing at such a rapid pace, we are aware that being at the forefront of this change is exactly where we should be. One of the best ways we know that we are achieving this is by signing more clients and receiving recognition from our peers within the industry.
In 2018, we have signed new clients and renewed contracts with existing clients, and our efforts are devoted to delivering them the best possible products. Also, we recently won FinTech of the Year for Singapore by The Asset, the longest standing and most respected publication within the asset management community. The article shares more detail but the highlight for us was this feedback - "Bambu in Singapore turned heads with its ability to deploy a clear goals-based investment strategy for banks and asset managers." 
Thank you to our clients and the industry for their continuous support and trust. We look forward to continuing this positive momentum.
Best regards, 
Ned Phillips, Aki Ranin & the team
