At a recent press event, Philip Thomas, CEO, Ascential Events, outlined why Singapore had been selected as a host city for the first ever Money20/20 event. Thomas said that Singapore’s government innovative approach to Fintech regulation and global partnerships as well as Singapore’s ranking as one of the top 5 FinTech Hubs in the world has been a key factor.
