Fintech Startups in Asia Switzerland Should Watch Closely

Asia is witnessing a strong increase in fintech investment as overseas investors search for opportunities in emerging markets and as western banks look to bolster their presence in the region.

In the first quarter of 2018, investment into fintech companies in the region surged on the back of a quartet of US$100 million+ mega-round deals. The region saw more than US$2 billion being pumped into its fintech startups, nearly as much as North America during the same period, according to CB Insights.
