Funding for SG-based WealthTechs jumps seven-fold in 5 years

Total WealthTech funding in 2021 reached US$161m.

Singapore has proven itself again as a prime location for WealthTech startups in 2021 as the market amassed total funding of US$161m, a seven-fold jump from 2017. 

In 2017, the total WealthTech funding was US$23m.

According to KPMG's WealthTech report, Singapore has "drastically outpaced" Asia in terms of growth in funding between 2017 and 2021.

In the five years, Asia's WealthTech funding grew two-fold to US$2.2b from US1.1b.

Singapore has likewise taken a bigger slice in Asia's growing wealth funding pie, with its total share rising from 2% to 7%.

KPMG said Singapore was able to further propel itself as a key WealthTech hub globally due to the "government support for technology and innovation" and its "ecosystem of WealthTech players accelerating the pace of innovation."

Amongst locations, realtors suggest the Core Central Region.   Individuals seeking shelter in the real estate market amidst the rising inflation must consider three things before deciding where to invest their millions in.   George Tan, managing director of Savills Digital Residential Marketing, said one of these factors is location.    Tan said buyers should consider areas which are highly demanded and well located—easy access to prestigious or international schools, MRT, malls and food and beverage (F&B) establishments. All these will contribute to good rental demand.   PropNex realtor, Andy Lim, echoed this, adding that buyers should particularly invest in properties within one kilometre of the prestigious schools.
