Hong Kong Financial Technology Buxx Index Rebounds


Hong Kong, China -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/27/2022 -- The Hong Kong FinTech Buzz Index (FBI) is a quarterly index that represents a quantified sentiment of the local FinTech-related news articles in local Chinese news media. It is often used as a way to judge the outlook for fintech companies in the region and also where general sentiment sits in terms of the sector on a local level. After a previous decline in the Q4 2021 numbers, the most recent figures show that the Index is rebounding. All six of the indices used in the FBI have shown recent improvement and in particular, for Blockchain & Cryptocurrency, which experienced the largest rise. Insurtech and Payment & Digital Banking also saw notable upward shifts. The Index is the first resource of its kind in the region to provide timely information that allows tracking of the way that the financial technology sector is growing. It is proving to be an essential yardstick for following the progress of this key Hong Kong financial industry.
