Monetary Authority of Singapore and International Financial Services Centre Authority Exchange MoU

The International Financial Services Centre Authority (IFSCA) and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) recently exchanged a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on supervisory cooperation “in the presence of the Honorable Prime Minister of India Shri. Narendra Modi at GIFT City, Gandhinagar, India.”

The MOU provides “a framework for supervisory cooperation between the two authorities in relation to financial services including stock exchanges and technical cooperation.”

It paves the way “for mutual assistance and the facilitation of the exchange of information between the Authorities, to strengthen the supervision of cross-border operations of the exchanges and compliance by the exchanges with the applicable laws and regulations.”

Welcoming the partnership with MAS, Shri. Injeti Srinivas, Chairperson, IFSCA said that India and Singapore have “shared a longstanding strategic economic and financial relationship.”

This MOU between IFSCA and MAS will “further strengthen and foster supervisory cooperation, exchange of information and sharing of best practices in key emerging areas of mutual interest between the authorities.”

Ravi Menon, Managing Director, MAS, said:

“This MOU not only paves the way for deeper collaboration between IFSCA and MAS, but will also facilitate greater partnership between financial institutions in India and in Singapore. There is scope for greater markets connectivity between India and Singapore and this MOU will facilitate exploring opportunities.”

As covered recently, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and Google Cloud have jointly launched the Point Carbon Zero Program “to drive the innovation, incubation and scaling of climate FinTech solutions in Asia.”

The Program is “a collaboration under MAS’ Project Greenprint and seeks to use climate FinTech solutions to bolster financial sector access to accurate and granular climate-related data, for more efficient deployment of capital towards green and sustainable projects.”

To support the Program, Google Cloud will “launch a world’s first open-source cloud platform dedicated to climate finance, which will facilitate the deployment of these climate FinTech solutions and their adoption by the financial sector.”
