The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority (Danish FSA) yesterday signed a FinTech Co-operation Agreement which aims to help FinTech companies in Singapore and Denmark to expand into each other’s markets.

The agreement will enable both regulators to refer FinTech companies to their counterparts. MAS and the Danish FSA have also committed to exploring joint innovation projects together, and to share information on emerging market trends and their impact on regulation.

The agreement was signed at the sidelines of the Money 20/20 Europe conference in Copenhagen. Singapore will also host the inaugural Money 20/20 Asia conference in March next year.

Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer, MAS, said: “Singapore and Denmark are important gateways to their surrounding regions. This cooperation agreement signifies the commitment of MAS and Danish FSA to promoting innovation in financial services and growing the FinTech landscape. We look forward to closer interactions between our respective FinTech ecosystems and more opportunities for our businesses to grow, expand and serve customers in each other’s markets.”

Thomas Brenøe, Deputy Director General, Danish FSA, said: “The FSA is committed to encourage innovation in the financial sector. We are currently establishing a FinTech Lab to support the development of fintechs and provide assistance for these to set up business in Denmark. Financial innovation is not confined to national borders, and we are therefore delighted to enter into this agreement with MAS. This agreement will ensure cooperation between the Danish FSA and MAS and will foster opportunity for businesses in Denmark and Singapore to grow.” Brian Mikkelsen, Danish Minister of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs added: “I am very happy that Denmark and Singapore have been able to join forces in this agreement. I am sure that this will help many FinTech companies and create an even better growth environment for these companies in both Singapore and Denmark.
