adoption of financial services in Southeast
Asia.
With 22 million people joining the mobile
age every year, Southeast Asia is among
fastest growing regions in the world.

propensity to adopt new technologies (E-

Growing ties between the
Southeast Asian and European
tech ecosystems.
Focus is shifting from USA to Asia. The USA
has traditionally been the destination of
choice for scaleups, given its big market,
talent, capital, and political stability.
Today, those ingredients are equally
available in Europe and Southeast Asia;
perhaps even more so.
To succeed in Southeast Asia,
collaboration with established players is
key.

The current pandemic is leading to increased
access to (and need for) digital banking
services. As many as 50% of SEA consumers
are unbanked; 70% are either underbanked
or unbanked.
Today cash is still the primary means of
transactions. 70% of SME merchants accept
only cash in 2019. The Covid-19 outbreak has
drastically accelerated SEA's shift to a
cashless world, with unprecedented growth
in the number of e-payment transactions
amid a sharp decrease in cash withdrawals
and deposits.
Banking, digital payments and loan-
financing services greatly propelled the
economic wheel forward throughout the
lockdown. Since many fintech firms are
startups, their agility to pivot their
operations to provide specialized services as
customers needed them strengthened the
industry.

Indonesia’s internet economy has more
than quadrupled to more than $40 billion
in 2019 and is well on track to reach $130
billion by 2025.
The runner up is Vietnam with $12 billion
in 2019 with a projected $43 billion by
2025.
The biggest contributors are the e-
Commerce and Ride-Hailing sectors.
Particularly in Vietnam, homegrown
marketplaces like Sendo and Tik, who
compete with the likes of Lazada and
Shopee, are their key economic drivers.
Singapore continues to dominate funding
and is the #1 regional base for fintech firms
with $2.6B raised since 2015, led by big
gains in funding to payments and
insurtech startups.

Since 2016, artificial intelligence and
blockchain enabled fintechs in Singapore
have gained significant traction. The limited
number of such fintech startups make them
even more attractive to investors.
In May, the Monetary Authority of Singapore
kicked off efforts to develop a framework to
ensure the "responsible" adoption of
artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics
in credit risk scoring.

90% of Vietnamese consumers opt to pay
cash on delivery for their online purchases, a
much higher proportion than other regional
markets. However, digital payments
technology is evolving rapidly. Payments
through mobile banking services surged by a
whopping 144% per year over the past five
years.
The rise of digital payments in Vietnam is
supported by the Government. To date, 33
payment licences have been issued by the
State Bank of Vietnam, at a rate of around 1

At least seven digital-only banks owned by
large traditional financial institutions
operate in Indonesia, the Philippines,
Thailand and Vietnam.
Central banks in Singapore and Malaysia are
preparing to open the banking industry to
digital players. Regulators in the Philippines
and Thailand have expressed interest in
developing virtual banking frameworks, and
other countries could follow suit. Although
the onset of virtual banking regimes will
bring in more competition, large incumbents
are already learning the tricks of the trade
with their digital-only banks. The future is to
enable these incumbents with software. The
next step is to enable these incumbents with
software.
In late June 2019, the Monetary Authority of
Singapore (MAS) announced its intention to
issue five digital bank licenses to eligible
applicants.

From disruption to collaboration: accelerating
fintechs product market-fit through strategic
collaborative business models (SCB’s).
Page / 28
Through collaborations, fintech companies
and Banks can have access to broader
markets, along with a number of other
benefits such as a faster route to product-
market fit where fintech companies can
attain early adopters from Banking clients.
We highlight that collaborating instead of
competing with fintechs can provide
innovative tech-solutions for Banks. For
example, shared services and knowledge
will improve product offerings through data
analytics tools like predictive analytics,
offering deeper engagements with
customers.
We conclude that the shift from disruption
to collaboration is largely driven by the use
of a more collaborative business model
such as B2B2C.

Exit landscape: there is at least $10 billion unrealised value in the pipeline.
While exits in the form of initial public
offerings are likely to be few and far between
in this climate, secondary sales may be the
way forward for shareholders seeking an exit
at this time
These sales could be to unicorns and
regional tech giants which remain well
capitalised, and want to strengthen their
platforms and widen their product offering.
We foresee a majority of exits will happen in
the Payment category.
This trend seems to already have started in
the region with minority shareholders of
Grab and Gojek looking to the private
secondary market to cash out on their
shares.

Finch Capital’s investment thesis in Southeast Asia.
● Stage: Seed - Series A (Early Stage)
● Themes: Fintech in Southeast Asia are still in its early-days, with current startups concentration still around
traditional fintech applications e.g. Payment & Lending. Wealth Management, Insurance Technology, and
Property Technology are predicted to be the next wave along with the applications of fintech in non-
financial sector or Embedded Fintech.
● Market: Indonesia is already Southeast Asia’s largest economy but it is now also poised to become the
region’s largest Fintech hub by 2025 at an estimated USD 130 Bn. The large number of unbanked and
underbanked population make it ripe for digital penetration.
● Business Model: Successful shift from disruption to collaboration between fintechs & financial institutions
are largely driven by the use of complementary business model (B2B2C); enabling faster product market-fit
and scalability across multiple channels.
● Exits: We expect 100+ Fintech exits in the region between 2020-2023 to be driven largely by consolidation
play around the Payment space and later Wealth Management - where we see local tech companies as the
main acquirers.

  • 28. From disruption to collaboration: accelerating fintechs product market-fit through strategic collaborative business models (SCB’s). Page / 28 Through collaborations, fintech companies and Banks can have access to broader markets, along with a number of other benefits such as a faster route to product- market fit where fintech companies can attain early adopters from Banking clients. We highlight that collaborating instead of competing with fintechs can provide innovative tech-solutions for Banks. For example, shared services and knowledge will improve product offerings through data analytics tools like predictive analytics, offering deeper engagements with customers. We conclude that the shift from disruption to collaboration is largely driven by the use of a more collaborative business model such as B2B2C.

  • 31. While exits in the form of initial public offerings are likely to be few and far between in this climate, secondary sales may be the way forward for shareholders seeking an exit at this time These sales could be to unicorns and regional tech giants which remain well capitalised, and want to strengthen their platforms and widen their product offering. We foresee a majority of exits will happen in the Payment category. This trend seems to already have started in the region with minority shareholders of Grab and Gojek looking to the private secondary market to cash out on their shares.

  • 35. Finch Capital’s investment thesis in Southeast Asia. ● Stage: Seed - Series A (Early Stage) ● Themes: Fintech in Southeast Asia are still in its early-days, with current startups concentration still around traditional fintech applications e.g. Payment & Lending. Wealth Management, Insurance Technology, and Property Technology are predicted to be the next wave along with the applications of fintech in non- financial sector or Embedded Fintech. ● Market: Indonesia is already Southeast Asia’s largest economy but it is now also poised to become the region’s largest Fintech hub by 2025 at an estimated USD 130 Bn. The large number of unbanked and underbanked population make it ripe for digital penetration. ● Business Model: Successful shift from disruption to collaboration between fintechs & financial institutions are largely driven by the use of complementary business model (B2B2C); enabling faster product market-fit and scalability across multiple channels. ● Exits: We expect 100+ Fintech exits in the region between 2020-2023 to be driven largely by consolidation play around the Payment space and later Wealth Management - where we see local tech companies as the main acquirers.
