Congratulations to all of the finalists!


Asia is home to many of the world’s premier financial services centres and a burgeoning financial technology market. These awards were developed to celebrate this incredible community, and the achievements and successes of the region’s best and brightest.


We had a fantastic response and hundreds of entries for our independent judging panel to review. The debates were fierce and the results close, but these entries shone through and we’re pleased to be able to recognise them as 2021 finalists!


Of course, until in-person events become viable, the Asia FinTech Awards will be an online event, with a pre-recorded broadcast streamed to announce the winners.


To watch the ceremony on 28 April 2021 at 7PM HKT, all you have to do is click on the link below and register.




The ceremony is absolutely free to watch so we encourage you to invite your colleagues and clients to register, too. And you can follow and contribute to the conversation around the finalists and Asia’s thriving fintech scene on Twitter and LinkedIn using #AsiaFTAwards.
