Digital investment platform launches in Hong Kong

As Manulife unveils savings product in the Special Administrative Region.

Singapore-headquartered Syfe has entered Hong Kong after securing type 1,4 and 9 licences from the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC).

Dhruv Arora, founder and chief executive at Syfe, said: “We see tremendous potential in the Hong Kong market given the current nascent stage of growth for digital wealth management platforms coupled with a high savings rate and rising cost of living. Syfe brings a truly differentiated offering to the market, combining decades of expertise, innovative products at a fraction of the cost that traditional institutions charge.

“As we grow our presence in Hong Kong, Syfe will continue to introduce unique solutions to meet the needs of users who are eagerly seeking new ways to grow their wealth. We are very confident of succeeding in Hong Kong as we have in Singapore.”

Syfe said that its mission is “to transform the way people across Asia manage their money”.

Arora added: “With Syfe making its entry into Hong Kong, the company is now firmly present in two of Asia’s leading wealth management hubs. We will continue to make broad strides toward our vision of being the leading digital investment platform across Asia.”
