Here are the 16 most influential fintech personalities in Malaysia
While the concept of fintech itself has been known in Malaysia since 2013, it had only become a buzzword in the country starting from 2016.
In its initial years, financial institutions and services industries were once worried about the disruption fintech could cause to their business. But as the years went by, we could see changes happened when these companies decided to embrace working with fintech startups instead.
