THE Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) on Wednesday signed an agreement to foster closer cooperation on developments and initiatives that nurture fintech (financial technology) entrepreneurship and support innovation in financial services in both Singapore and Abu Dhabi.
This partnership is the result of exchanges between the fintech teams of MAS and the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) of ADGM.

Both authorities will also undertake and explore joint innovation projects on the application of key technologies, including digital and mobile payments, blockchain and distributed ledgers, big data, flexible platforms and other new technologies.
