Fintech Innovation in Singapore and Southeast Asia (FISSA) In the fall semester of 2018 (4 to 10 November), the St.Gallen Institute of Management in Asia offered a new Asia Compact course for Master students of the University of St.Gallen - Fintech Innovation in Singapore and Southeast Asia (FISSA). Taught by Dr. Mato Njavro, this dynamic course provided students with an overview of the exciting Fintech landscape in Singapore and Southeast Asia. In recent years, the marriage of financial services with technology – Fintech – has taken the world by storm and Singapore and Southeast Asia have been at the forefront of this Fintech revolution. In addition to the lectures on current trends in the Fintech industry and business model innovation, students had a chance to visit some of the most innovative and exciting companies in this sector. During the visit to the FinLab (Singapore’s leading fintech accelerator) students learned more about Singapore’s fintech ecosystem and its key stakeholders. FISSA students visited leading companies from various domains of the fintech universe (mobile payments, digital wealth management aka. ‘’robo-advisors’’, blockchain & cryptocurrencies, etc.) and learned directly from entrepreneurs behind these ventures, among them Ant Financial, the largest fintech company in the world. At Amazon Web Services the students learned about cloud computing and how it provides the necessary infrastructure for the fintech ecosystem to operate smoothly. It was truly an unforgettable week for all students who came away with broadened perspectives on the Fintech industry in Singapore and Southeast Asia.
