Hong Kong Is a Springboard for FinTech Innovation


Hong Kong, China -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/10/2022 -- Hong Kong is the ideal environment when it comes to fintech innovation thanks to a number of key factors. For example, in 2020 the financial services sector made up 21% of Hong Kong's GDP. Not only that but 78 of the 100 most significant banks in the world have a presence in Hong Kong, as well as a myriad of other financial services players, such as asset managers and brokers. Hong Kong also has the second deepest funding pool in Asia, according to the most recent figures, ranking only behind the Chinese when it comes to financial funding. Despite the impact of the pandemic on this area, and globally, there was no decline in that funding pool - in fact, the latest figures show an increase of 8% in 2020. There is also an incredibly diverse range of investors here, all of which provide an incredibly robust capital base that makes Hong Kong a springboard for fintech innovation.
