致力发展金融科技,新加坡再推两大革新措施

新加坡一直致力于成为东盟地区的金融科技中心,该国的进展也一直为全球所瞩目。一直以来,新加坡非常欢迎有想法、能够推动当地发展的外来人才,最近更是大力推进人工智能和机器学习,与全球金融科技中心步调一致。

在提高自己金融科技地位期间,新加坡的金融科技业几乎同时迎来两大重要措施:

1. MAS终于发布通用二维码

鉴于新加坡市场和商店柜台上各种电子钱包相互竞争,新加坡金融管理局(MAS)宣布正式发布新加坡二维码(SGQR),将多个二维码组合成单个标签,结束了商家在柜台上展示各种二维码的混乱局面。

SGQR将被27家支付机制采用,包括PayNow、NETS、GrabPay、Liquid Pay和Singtel DASH,并将在接下来六个月内逐步完成部署。SGQR由MAS和信息通信媒体发展管理局(IMDA)合作开发,此外,新加坡和国际支付提供商将会组成特别小组,负责新加坡商家的SGQR实施。

支付时,用户需要扫描SGQR,查看自己首选的二维码支付方式是否出现在标签中。如果没有出现,支付方式与之前类似。

接下来六个月内,目前提供二维码支付的商家要把自己当前的二维码更换为单个SGQR标签。SGQR标签更换第一阶段将于9月下旬先从中央商务区的商家开始。

其间将会有一个过渡期,在商家尚未更换为SGQR标签的情况下,消费者可以像之前一样进行二维码支付。商家可联系自己的收单行了解对应的部署时间表。

2. MAS将与IFC和东盟银行协会合作推出多国API

金融科技中心不可能只作为金融科技参与者在当地运行的开放场所,还应该是各地区金融科技发展聚集的中心地。出于这个目的,东盟金融创新网络(AFIN)宣布推出API交易所(APIX),一个面向金融机构的在线全球金融科技市场和沙盒平台。

该项目由东盟银行协会、国际金融公司(IFC)和MAS联合推出。

通过API,金融机构和金融科技公司能够在全球市场上互相联系,在金融行业的沙盒中开展协同实验,并采用应用编程接口(API)在亚太地区推动数字变革和金融包容。

由Virtusa领头、包括Fidor和Percipient的全球财团被选中负责开发和运营APIX。该财团将采用技术解决方案来支持从FI向API架构的转变,以及与市场上其他参与者的合作。

APIX平台将在今年11月份举行的新加坡金融科技节上公开。

金融管理局首席金融科技官Sopnendu Mohanty评论道:

"由政策制定者、FI、初创企业和投资者组成的广泛生态系统对AFIN的强力支持让MAS倍受鼓舞。APIX将会推动数字经济的发展,让FI互相联系,并且"

AFIN还宣布与阿布扎比全球市场合作,邀请对方成为APIX平台首个东盟范围外的监管机构成员。通过这项合作,APIX平台能够将全球金融科技市场和沙盒推广到中东和北非。

Singapore has aspirations towards becoming a fintech hub in the ASEAN region, and global eyes have been raptly observing the island nation’s progress. Singapore is said to be welcoming of outside talents if they have a good idea to elevate the local scene, and more recently has made a heavy push towards artificial intelligence and machine learning, which is in line with where the global fintech scene is headed.

In gearing up towards their fintech status, Singapore’s fintech has seen two major moves almost concurrently:

1. MAS Finally Launches Their Universal QR Code

Since the clutter of competing e-wallets filling up the Singaporean market and store countertops, Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has announced the official launch of the Singapore Quick Response Code (SGQR). It combines multiple QR codes into one single label, freeing merchants from having to clutter their counters with various displays.

SGQR will be adopted by 27 payment schemes including PayNow, NETS, GrabPay, Liquid Pay and Singtel DASH, and will be deployed progressively over the next six months. Developed by MAS, and the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), there will be a task force made up of both Singapore and international payment providers who will be implementing SGQR for their Singapore merchants.

To pay, users would scan the SGQR, then see if their preferred QR payment method appears in the label. Otherwise, payment methods remain similar.

Merchants that currently offer QR code payments will have their existing QR codes replaced with a single SGQR label over the next six months. The first phase of SGQR label replacement, starting with merchants in the Central Business District, will be commencing in late September 2018.

There will be a transition period, in which consumers can make QR code payments as they always have if the SGQR label isn’t available. Merchants can approach their acquirers to check on their deployment timetable.

2. MAS Will Unveil Its Multi-Nation API in Collaboration with IFC and ASEAN Bankers Association

A fintech hub would not only be an open playground for fintech players to operate locally, but also be a central place for fintech developments across the region to congregate. With this in mind, the ASEAN Financial Innovation Network (AFIN) announced the launch of API Exchange (APIX), an online Global fintech Marketplace and Sandbox platform for financial institutions.

This project is a collaborative effort between ASEAN Bankers Association, the Internantional Finance Corporation (IFC), and MAS.

The API will allow financial institutions and fintech firms to connect to one another on a globally curated marketplace, collaborative experiments in a sandbox among those n teh financial industry, and adoption of  Application Programming Interface (APIs) to drive digital transformation and financial inclusion in Asia-Pacific.

A global consortium led by Virtusa, which includes Fidor and Percipient, has been selected to develop and operate APIX. The consortium will apply tech solutions to support the transition of FIs towards API architecture and collaboration with other participants in the marketplace.

The APIX platform will be unveiled at the Singapore FinTech Festival in November 2018.

Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief Fintech Officer of MAS commented that:

“MAS is heartened by the strong support that AFIN has received from the broader ecosystem, comprising policy-makers, FIs, start-ups and investors. APIX will propel the growth of the digital economy, connect FIs and”

AFIN also announced a partnership with Abu Dhabi Global Market as the first regulator member of the APIX platform outside ASEAN. This partnership on the APIX platform will see the expansion of the Global Fintech Marketplace and Sandbox to the Middle East and North Africa.
